KALAMAZOO COUNTY EDUCATORS: are you craving change?

INSPIRE 2014-2015, a three-hour conference will focus on the importance of education as a community need and responsibility. What is our story of impact? Get ready to hear from national and local experts who have woven creativity, innovation and constant change into their everyday culture. One business owner, Rich Sheridan, created an innovative work environment by establishing joy in the workplace as a priority and mechanism for supporting the highest levels of creativity and innovation.

Finally, Dr. Sampson Davis will talk about the power of education to change lives, like it did his.
