RPS Direct Update - October 23, 2020

Dear #RPSStrong Family, My apologies for the technical glitch that held up my RPS Direct last night! Here's what was supposed to go out: I just finished participating in the Policy Pathways 2020 Awards Ceremony, which honored Governor Wilder and six area youth, including Terri Lee from Franklin Military, Jazz Miles from Richmond Community, and DeJia Graham from Franklin Military (see bios below). Policy Pathways is an innovative education program whose mission is to prepare young people to lead in the policy sector. This evening's celebration was incredibly inspiring, and that's in no small part due to the visionary leadership of Dr. D. Pulane Lucas, President and CEO of Policy Pathways. I also want to recognize School Board Member Dawn Page, who serves on the organization's Board of Directors, and School Board Vice-Chair Cheryl Burke, who nominated all three of the RPS students who received awards tonight.
