Critical Connections or Hokey Hook-ups?
In an age when everyone seems to be worried about being totally connected, we often confuse the truly critical connections that make a world of difference in the lives of our gifted and talented kids with hokey hook-ups that do nothing but interrupt what’s important in life. So what are those connections that need to be made in order for those that we care so much about to be able to go beyond survival, beyond success, and beyond our wildest hopes for a great education, great careers, and great lives? We’ll focus on just a powerful handful, and we look forward to seeing you there.
