KEA Student Program will hold its third annual Minority Leadership Conference this year on November 4 from 8:00am to 4:00pm at the new Fredrick Douglass High School in Lexington. In past years, this conference has brought together minority aspiring educators from different colleges and universities across the Commonwealth to come together to engage in current issues in education.

This year's conference "Changing the Mindset; Regaining the Power", is a day is filled with interactive professional development sessions, a lunch forum with superintendents and participants. Each aspiring educator in attendance will receive a professional development certificate to put into their portfolios. This is a great opportunity to have rich conversations about what is attracting and impacting minorities going into education and how to best reach talented students to enter into this worthy and rewarding profession.
