D.B. REINHART INSTITUTE FOR ETHICS IN LEADERSHIP LECTURE SERIES TO OPEN AT VITERBO AUGUST 30
LA CROSSE, Wis. – Former businessman and attorney Jamie Vollmer brings his message of unwavering support for public education to Viterbo University Wednesday, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center lobby.
Vollmer will present “Welcome to the Great Conversation: Increasing Community Support for Wisconsin’s Public Schools,” as the opening event of the D.B. Reinhart for Ethics in Leadership fall lecture series. His talk is free and open to the public and parents and educators are particularly encouraged to attend.
With a reputation for presentations that are uplifting, intelligent, and entertaining, Vollmer acknowledges the need for meaningful change in our schools, but insists aggressive support of public schools is crucial to the future of America. He encourages business and community leaders to work with local educators as constructive partners to modernize schools and significantly improve learning opportunities for all students.
Vollmer uses statistics, logic, and humor to deliver his very positive message about the future of public schools. The La Crosse School District is collaborating with the Reinhart Institute in co-sponsoring the event.
