Back by popular demand, Newton County School System (NCSS) is pleased to announce that visionary and instructional leader, Dr. Adolph Brown will return to Newton County to headline the school district’s Spring Education Summit scheduled for Saturday, March 14 at Newton High School! Dr. Brown is a “no excuses leader” who will keep attendees thoroughly engaged.

According to Dr. Brown’s website (http://www.docspeaks.com/), his “list of accomplishments is long, but the path to his life's work wasn't easy. Dr. Adolph ‘Doc’ Brown is an internationally recognized Real-World Business Leadership & Educational Excellence authority and master teacher, his humble beginnings and down-to-earth moniker allows him to do more than talk and communicate – Doc touches and connects.  As a first generation high school graduate of a single parent mother reared in the poverty of housing projects, Doc has risen to international prominence as a much sought-after speaker for awakening youth/student groups, inspiring teachers/school administrators, revitalizing community colleges/universities, enlightening parents/child welfare organizations, encouraging faith groups, and motivating small businesses/large corporations.”

Dr. Brown truly inspired all NCSS employees at their “Back to School Meeting” and NCSS parents at the school system’s August 2014 Education Summit. Audience members have asked repeatedly for him to return this spring.

“Dr. Brown’s message addresses the integral connection between and among the school system, parents, and community; it’s important that we work in tandem so that all students are able to fulfill their potential,” said NCSS Superintendent, Samantha Fuhrey.  “Dr. Brown speaks to the important work in which we must engage on behalf of the children of Newton County; I am excited to be able to offer ‘part two’ of Dr. Brown’s presentation, and I look forward to future opportunities for him to support our work.”

In addition to Dr. Brown, attendees of the Education Summit will hear an inspirational message from NCSS Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey; have the opportunity to attend other informative workshops; meet community vendors, and more. Refreshments will be provided.
