I wanted to let you know about an upcoming event in Boston that colleagues, students, staff, and families are encouraged to attend. The EduTech Summit is a Microsoft YouthSpark program intended to provide information and access about tools and resources to help today’s youth and the adults who work with them to achieve success.
The theme for the Summit is Achieve. The keynote speaker, Victor Ortiz – a protégée of Oscar de La Hoya and one of the brightest stars in boxing today – exemplifies what it means to Achieve. Overcoming a difficult childhood, Victor aims to inspire, mentor and support our youth to believe they can achieve great things.
