Embracing Change Conference a Success!
The Embracing Change Conference: 21st Century Education Professionals was held on March 29, 2018. This SOLD OUT event was held in the EKU Perkins Conference Center and included Counselors and Education Professionals from around the area. It was a great day of networking, sharing ideas and learning to "embrace" the ever-changing landscape of education and counseling.
The day included an opening statement by President Michael Benson, 20 Break-Out Sessions, 7 poster sessions and a fabulous luncheon with Keynote Speak, Dr. Aaron Thompson, Executive Vice-President of the KY Council on Postsecondary Education. Dr. Thompson brought insite to the group about the landscape of education in Frankfort in the recent political climate. He was very encouraging to say "Though thing may seem bleek at times, I wouldn't want to be in any other profession."
Special thanks to numerous committee members who worked tirelessly to put together this great event over the past year. Especially Committee Chair, Dr. Carol Sommer, and Co-Chairs, Dr. Angie Spiers and Dr. Lawrence Crouch.
