NAACP Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Luncheon

JEA Vice President, Kevin Ball, and I were invited by UEA to sit at their table at the NAACP Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Luncheon at Little America on Monday.  Also at our table were James and Abby Maughan.  Abby is one of the scholarship recipients, and James is a French and English teacher at West Hills Middle School.  In the picture, Abby is standing second from the right. 

The main speaker was Dr. John H. Jackson.  He was very inspiring!  He is action in education policy and served on President Obama's Education Policy Transition Group.  He talked about the "IT" for different groups of people and for individuals and what happens when "IT" is gone.  We need to build our future leadership.  We will not always be here to do the work.  Education is the key.
