An innovative approach to education and economic development will be the focus of Lee’s Summit’s Fifth Annual Education Summit that will be held from 8 a.m. to noon, Jan. 28, 2015 in the MCC-Longview Education Center, 500 SW Longview Road, Lee’s Summit, MO.
“Business and community leaders, educators from all segments, parents and students will convene at the Education Summit to discuss the education ecosystem and continue the tremendous work started with the citizen-led strategic plan Lee’s Summit 360°: Charting Tomorrow,” said Mike Allen, chairman of the Education Key Performance Area of Lee’s Summit 360.
The Education Summit, which began in 2010, is a forum to update stakeholders on the progress of the community’s educational system while providing an opportunity to brainstorm ideas to continue growth in this vital area.
“This year our work will focus on the important connection between a robust educational system, the generation of economic development activity, and a strong economy,” said Allen.
