I’m looking forward to presenting at Summer Leadership Institute. I have the honor of unveiling before hundreds of school administrators from all over South Carolina the the Our Education Vision Project.

I’m always amazed at what a vision can do in transforming activity into productivity and synergy. And I’m very excited about leveraging technologies and communications behavior to engage the broader public in a meaningful conversation about education in the state.

Here’s a great quote on vision and direction:

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.” — Henry David Thoreau

Another quote I like about having vision:

“I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is that I can’t find anybody who can tell me what they want.” — Mark Twain

So, I was eager to help with this initiative of course, and I’m honored to present it. I think we can have a significant positive impact on education in the state. There is much more work yet to be done.
