Join HISD for NBC News Learn’s live education summit on Sept. 24

HISD Interim Superintendent Grenita Lathan will participate in a live education summit hosted by NBC News Learn, which will focus on the state of education in Houston and across the nation.

The live event will be held from 4-6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 24 at University of Houston-Downtown, Robertson Auditorium (201 Girard St., 77002) and is open to the public. The summit will be livestreamed on and on KPRC Channel 2.

NBC News Learn, the education division of NBC News, is convening school leaders, teachers, parents, students, policymakers and community members for a live discussion on vital education issues impacting students.

The live broadcast will be an opportunity to hear Dr. Lathan discuss, on a national platform, her strategic priorities, the state of the district, and the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The discussion will be led by NBC Correspondent Rehema Ellis.

Principal Khalilah Campbell-Rhone of Worthing High School and HISD Chief of Strategy and Innovation Rick Cruz will also join Lathan as panelists. Campbell-Rhone will share her successes at Worthing and school turnaround strategies during the “Path Forward” panel, while Cruz will discuss the district’s wraparound services and support for at-risk students as a panelist for the “Learning without Limits” panel.
