Connection to the NEXT School:

Community Partner

What makes you excited about "Impact-Based Learning"?

This education model goes beyond a standard lesson, and engages a child to help them locate their passion. They are encouraged to discover how their passion can serve and empower the world around them. That's when they find their purpose...now THAT'S education.

Have you previously served on the NEXT School Board or Planning Committee?

No (first term).

Qualifications and reasons for serving on the NEXT School board:

I have over 13 years of experience in Higher Education, 4 years of youth camp experience, and over 7 years of student ministry experience. I am a team member of an educational think tank called RAE (Research, Analysis, Experience), TEDxGreenville, MESH-SC and TRiO Upward Bound.

I desire to serve as a member of the NEXT High School Board so that I can become an advocate for non-traditional education, accessible education, community collaborations, student engagement, intercollegiate collaborations, and diversity affairs. I see the potential for the NEXT High School model to expand change within our community and prepare students for a future of innovation. I want to be part of that movement.

Finally...What is your "coffee shop" order?

Hazelnut, milk, cane sugar...and leave the pot ;)
