speaker_series_TEXT_ONLYTOWSON, MD —  Wes Moore will discuss the importance of individual decisions and the value of community support as the featured speaker at the second annual speaker series hosted by the BCPS Superintendent’s Business Advisory Council on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016. Moore is a New York Times best-selling author, founder and CEO of BridgeEdu, and host of “Future City” on WYPR 88.1 FM.

“Wes’ message about the power of mentoring could not come at a better time for our schools, as we strengthen relationships with students to support their success,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. S. Dallas Dance. “His lessons from the military, youth advocacy, and social entrepreneurship are the perfect fit for our educators, parents, and students as well as business leaders and community members.

The Business Advisory Council Speaker Series launched last year to bring the community together around major issues that impact the future of our students, schools, and county. The inaugural event featured leadership and teamwork advice from Orioles Manager Buck Showalter.
