This is a free event.
“More than just another networking group”. FRWRC WIN is open to all the women in our community. It was founded on the concept of women lifting each other up, through meaningful connections, opportunities to learn from one another and shared interests. We hope you will join us.
Bring your lunch and business cards to share and a door prize if you like.
Wednesday, Feb 26
11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
213 E Main Street (Open House-Meet in the Middle)
Guest Speaker: Dr. Tess Hegedus
Topic: Innovation in Education: How to Prepare Students to be Future Ready
Dr. Tess Hegedus is the Dean of Instructional Leadership and Innovation at Randolph-Macon Academy. Dr. Hegedus’ experience spans the educational spectrum from elementary to higher education. She has created, developed, and fundraised for innovative educational programs and has led faculty to become both technically proficient and digitally savvy to promote instructional best practice. Her work at R-MA has been to build innovative programming such as the Pre-Professional Pathways and J-Term as a way to help prepare students to be future ready.
In this talk, Dr. Tess Hegedus will share the innovative academic initiatives her team has put into place at Randolph-Macon Academy to help prepare our students for the future. She will discuss how schools and educators today need to set their sights on developing students holistically to be prepared for careers that don’t yet exist. Specifically, she will discuss key literacies needed for the 21st century, how to develop content and skills mastery, and how to cultivate creativity in all of our youth.
Thank You What Matters W2, Beth Medved Waller for being a FRWRC Gold Business Partner & for sponsoring this event:
In late March 2016, we opened a new space on Main Street in the Middle of Main building. It is called What Matters Open House: Meet in the Middle” and will serve as a resource to our community. We will offer a wealth of real estate and community information, as well as cutting edge technology to learn more about listings, the buying process, and our local community attractions and resources. This space is for the entire community. We will open our doors to community groups to educate the public about the causes that are close to their hearts and also offer our space as a meeting venue to anyone in need of a local location. Helping our community grow and serve as a resource to our neighbors is "What Matters” to us.
