Event description

Description


On December 14th, 2012, Scarlett Lewis's life changed forever. Her 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was murdered in his first grade classroom during the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history. After this horrific event, Scarlett found the courage and strength to begin a journey that would take her all over the world sharing her motto, left behind on a kitchen chalkboard by Jesse:

Nurturing. Healing. Love.


Scarlett Lewis on the Today Show


On the evening of August 30th, Scarlett will be at Sullivan High School to share her story of hope and the ways in which families, schools, and communities can all be part of the solution. Learn more about Scarlett’s crusade for social and emotional education through The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation and her curriculum, Choose Love.


Scarlett and Choose Love, which includes a component for schools, homes, and communities, have been well-received globally. (Southwest School Corporation has chosen to implement the Choose Love curriculum in grades K-8 this school year.)

  • Recently, Scarlett and her organization were included in the release of the Federal Commission on School Safety Report. Its number one recommendation is teaching character values and social-emotional learning as part of proactive prevention.

  • Scarlett was also part of the Aspen Institute's National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development which recently released a major national report - From a Nation at Risk to a Nation at Hope. It calls out to all areas of society to accelerate efforts to ensure that all students have access to quality social and emotional learning (SEL) which has been Scarlett's life-long goal since losing her son at Sandy Hook.

  • Heard around the world: Scarlett has led workshops at multiple conferences including Bett in London, SXSW EDU, and ASCD Empower18. She was the keynote speaker at the 2018 National Forum on Character presented by Character.org and the Music City SEL Conference in Nashville. Additionally, Scarlett was interviewed by BBC, Fox News, and many regional papers and podcasts about the Choose Love Enrichment Program and the benefits of SEL.

  • Choose Love is the Solution: To date, the Choose Love Enrichment Program for families, schools, and communities has been downloaded in all 50 states, Washington DC, and in almost 80 countries! There are over 30,000 downloads by more than 12,000 educators.

Scarlett will speak at 6:00 p.m. in the Sullivan HS auditorium. The presentation is free and open to the public. Tickets are available through the Eventbrite website or by completing a registration form at any Southwest School Corporation school. There will be a meet/greet with cookies and refreshments after Scarlett's presentation.

Tickets are limited to the first 500 people.
