“All of us at KLRN are passionate about education and we are proud to be part of an event that promotes growth. Our goal is to contribute to a community united through programming, events and workshops that promote education. KLRN will continue to provide a space for all ages and generations to keep dreams alive and embrace the future of innovation and achievement,” said Arthur Emerson, President and CEO of KLRN.
“Operation Opportunity: Big Dreams. Real Talk” will bring the community together to share, engage, and discuss dreams -- provide a platform to share their own stories, ask questions, or inform the public about the generation diversification in pursuit of the American Dream. The conversation will include local youth community members sharing their thoughts of what their dreams are, and how they envision the future.
“We need to work together to find solutions for some of our community’s greatest challenges -- particularly in education. At SA2020, we believe that means we must hear solutions from everyone involved. Asking students about their dreams for their futures and the barriers they see to those dreams is important. Then, we find the opportunities that we, as a community, can help create,” said Molly Cox, President and CEO of SA2020.
The event will be recorded for web and/or broadcast. The event is free (registration is required); however, KLRN will be collecting books as donations for 8th grade students in Harlandale ISD.
