See Me, Hear Me: A Conversation with Tomorrow’s Leaders

Princeton High School students and members of the District's teaching staff will be hosting a unique event to allow students, staff, and community members to exchange views about some of the most pressing educational issues facing students in our diverse educational community.

Community members, parents, staff members and all who attend will be treated to a lively conversation with students about students' perspective on school, community and personal issues and concerns that affect their educational experiences. 

The event will include guest speaker Mr. Yumy Odom, President of East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention (ECBACC, Inc.), a community-based 501(c)(3) non-profit education, literacy and arts initiative that connects hundreds of comic book, fantasy and sci-fi creators and aficionados while serving as a network and proving-ground for the modern-day story-teller. It will also include small group discussions, a student-led panel discussion, and a lunch to allow participants to further engage and encourage our student leaders of tomorrow.
