Parker Invites Community Builders to Leadercast

By Kevin Yaley, Head of School

At Francis Parker School we seek to inspire and develop tomorrow's leaders.

Leadership doesn’t simply mean to be in charge. Leadership is inspiring others to take on challenges and reach beyond their expectations.

That is why Parker is inviting San Diegans to attend

Leadercast

, a daylong leadership-building event on May 9 that will be telecast live from Atlanta at Parker's Linda Vista Campus.

Speakers at the event include best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Former First Lady Laura Bush and other communications, business and creative leaders.

Leadercast proposes to “build leaders worth following” and we are proud that our own student leaders from the student-run magazine

Mosaic

are coordinating the presentation of this telecast for a San Diego audience.

You are invited to attend along with current leaders from San Diego’s business, academic, civic and neighborhood communities.

Tickets may be purchased online at

http://leadercast.com/location/sandiego/

and proceeds will be used to support the student publication,

Mosaic

.

Mosaic

magazine is produced by Parker students participating in the Global Journal Project (GJP), a non-profit organization that engages school communities in sharing stories and forming bonds across international and cultural borders.

The articles cover a wide range of topics. Each issue is intended to promote insightful and culturally respectful dialogue.

The magazine is an entirely student run enterprise created in partnership with students from the Preuss School at UCSD. Students oversee curating the stories from local, national and international contributors.

In addition to managing editorial production, students must fundraise to cover the cost of publication and market the magazine.

We hope you'll plan on attending Leadercast at Francis Parker School on Friday, May 9. Join us as we strive to build students and citizens that will lead us through to a bright and exciting future.
