Community input needed to create a shared vision for 21st Century Education in Whitley County

Sponsored by the Indiana Humanities Council and the Bowen Center for Public Affairs, the event will feature Dr. David Dresslar, Executive Director of the Center for Excellence in Leadership & Learning.  While he doesn’t carry a crystal ball, Dr. Dresslar can provide a fascinating look into the future of education.

Following his talk, guests will be asked to participate in roundtable discussions by sharing their thoughts and recommendations for action to address education innovation in Whitley County. The event is scheduled to end by 8:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

To make attendance even more enticing, one lucky participant’s name will be drawn to direct a $5,000 grant to the Whitley County School of their choice for STEM related programs and materials.  A teacher’s name will also be drawn to direct a similar $2,500 grant to their classroom. While open to the public, seating is limited and will be allocated on a first-come basis. To reserve a space, call the Community Foundation at (260) 244-5224, or send an e-mail to

The event is being offered in conjunction with the Community Foundation’s Whitley-Forward initiative.
