CEOs of non-profits
gather to talk
By MICHAEL MAAS
At the Nonprofit and Public
Management Center's second
annual Education Leaders Forum
on Thursday, participants dis-
cussed ways to attract education
leaders to Detroit.
About 30 students attended the
event, which included a discussion
panel of four leaders with expertise
in education in Detroit. Panelists
included Scott Morgan, the found-
er and CEO of Education Pioneers,
an education recruitment firm;
Dan Varner, the CEO of Excellent
Schools Detroit, a non-profit group
working to improve education in
Detroit; Kendra Hearn, a Clinical
Assistant Professor at the School
of Education; and Lesley Redwine,
the CEO and Superintendent of
New Urban Learning, a non-profit
charter management organization.
The forum followed the NPM's
Social Impact Challenge, a contest
that took place earlier in the day.
"The point of the Social Impact
Challenge is to allow students at
Michigan the chance to work on a
real-life problem for an organiza-
tion that focuses on social impact.
So in this case, Education Pioneers
is tackling a real important issue
for our nation, which is how to cre-
ate a better pipeline of leaders into
the space," said Rishi Moudgil, the
managing director of NPM.
Morgan said he agreed to speak
in the panel and act as a judge for
the social impact challenge because
he wanted to hear the students'
insights, which he could possibly
implement in his organization.
"The caliber of thought and
analysis in the short time frame
with which they had to analyze all
the data and make recommenda-
tions was incredibly impressive,"
Morgan said. "We have a number
of ideas that we are going to be able
to run with in a high-quality way."
Hearn, an assistant professor at the
School of Education and University
coordinator forthe Teach for America-
Detroit Program,was also amember of
the panel. Born and raised in Detroit,
she said she believes city residents are
"My greatest aspiration was to go
back to Detroit and educate her chil-
dren so they can have the opportuni-
ties that I was afforded because I had
an excellent education,"Hearnsaid.
The discussion panel was followed
by an announcement ofthe winners of
the Social Impact Challenge Awards.
The winning team, Focus Education,
consisted of graduate students Vinita
Vishwanarayan, Stefana Vutova, Lau-
ren Sheram, Nellie Tsai. They were
awarded $2,500for their presentation.
"It feels really good because ina
short span we came together from
all these differentschools and came
up with ideas that not only had
implications in terms of a finan-
cial perspective, but also a social
impact," Vishwanarayan said.
Morgan gave the keynote speech
ner. He highlighted the importance
of leadership in education.
"First, leadership matters and it
matters at all levels," Morgan said.
"Secondly, leaders can have tremen-
dous leverage. They get leverage by
developing other leaders and they
have leverage in the terms of the way
thingis thatleadershipis thekeylever
Business senior Lilliane Webb
came to the discussion panel to learn
more about why students at the Uni-
versity should consider working in
education in Detroit.
"The hope that they had for the
city, as someone from the state of
Michigan, that they're not encourag-
ing leaders to go elsewhere to make
a difference was really inspiring,"
Education graduate student Raul
Cruz said he is considering a career
in education and came to learn more
about working in an urban environ-
"I'm from New York City so
I know about education in the
inner-city, but while I'm in the
Midwest,the place I need to focus
my attention is the place where
it's needed the most," Cruz said.
"I've taught before and I hope to
possibly lead in Detroit."
