Posted on behalf of Mr. John Childs, Hope-Hill Parent-Community Liaison:
Last year The GFWC Atlanta Woman’s Club partnered with Hope-Hill ES to invite one of our greatest Atlanta champions Andrew Young to our school to sit down and educate our 4th and 5th grade students with his vast experience. Our principal Ms. Wheeler was super excited the event was such a huge success and has been on constant replay on the APS television channel this year. Our entire student body participated in a group high five down the hallway welcoming Ambassador Young into the building and then our upper grade students got to sit and have a fireside chat with Mr. Young. There was trivia, interactive questioning, prizes and copies of his latest book were given and provided by the Atlanta Woman’s Club. It was a huge success.
This year the GFWC Atlanta Woman’s Club has made it possible for Dr. Louis Sullivan, a pillar of the Atlanta community in so many ways to come and be the next installment in what is becoming our fireside chat series. Dr. Sullivan has an impressive amount of accomplishments to boast including being the very 1st Dean of the Morehouse School of Medicine as well as being appointed the Secretary of Health and Human Services under President George Bush. He has the distinguished status of being President emeritus at Morehouse College. Dr. Sullivan was shaped during the same Civil Rights era that birthed so many of our country’s great leaders, and it will be a privilege to have him as a guest at Hope-Hill ES.
We would like to extend an invitation to you to join us on Friday April 3rd from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to hear and enjoy our time with Dr. Sullivan as he has a fireside chat with our 4th and 5th grade students.
Please RSVP to John Childs, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have further questions that will ease the way for you joining us, please do not hesitate to ask. We anticipate your presence.
