Session: Power of One
You entered education to make a difference - and you do!
Join Manny Scott, an original Freedom Writer whose story is told in part of the 2007 hit movie. As Manny struggled through the most difficult moments of his life; it was loving adults – teachers, coaches, a lunch lady, an assistant principal – who met him at his point of need. They helped him go from a high school drop out to the man he is today, a Ph.D. student, husband, father, pilot, and public servant.

Hamilton County ESC is privileged to sponsor this event with Norwood City Schools, Norwood City Schools Alumni Association, and Xavier University.
