Nationally recognized speaker comes to Danville!

As part of its ongoing mission to support educators across the region, our VISION 2035 Education Work Group is hosting a motivational event for teachers & school administrators on Saturday, December 8 at O. T. Bonner Middle School in Danville.  The featured speaker for this event is Michael Bonner, a nationally renowned motivator, published author and second grade teacher at South Greenville Elementary School in Greenville, NC.  Bonner has been recognized for his innovative and creative approaches to reaching students by Ellen DeGeneres, NBC Nightly News, Ashton Kutcher Foundation, Flocabulary and FrontRow.

The event begins at 9am.  Following an informative and inspiring keynote, Bonner will sign copies of his book, “Get Up or Give Up: How I Almost Gave Up on Teaching.”  Attendees are also invited to stay for an appreciation luncheon at noon.  The event and lunch are free to educators and school administrators within the Middle Border region, which includes Danville, Pittysylvania County and Caswell County.

“Middle Border Forward is delighted to partner with our friends in education to bring Michael Bonner to Danville,” says Jennifer Gregory, executive director, “His energy and passion are contagious.  We cannot wait to see how he inspires the teachers in our community.”

While the event is free, registration is required.  Head to our Eventbrite page to register online.
