A team of four Kentucky educators attended the MBA Research National Leadership Forum Jan. 26-29 in Columbus, Ohio.
Betty J. Montgomery, business and marketing program consultant with the Kentucky Department of Education; Krysti Conlin from Whitley County High School, Jennifer Michael from Dixie Heights High School (Kenton County) and Courtney Givens from Henderson County High School attended the three-day strategic planning and collaborative experience. Invitations to the annual event are extended to teacher leaders in organizations such as state associations for marketing and business, and business-related student career and technical student organizations, like DECA or FBLA.
While at the leadership forum, the Kentucky team worked to build a common message, to engage the business community, to involve teachers and students, and to address the challenges of today’s education environment.
