Duchesne and Uintah Counties to Join for Education Summit

After an amazing first conference last spring, this year’s Education Summit will be bigger, better and welcoming even more educators throughout the Basin. Serving on the Vernal Chamber Education Committee, Paul Hacking explains that this year will focus even more on the development of educators. “We decided to make it all inclusive,” shares Hacking. “We work so closely between the counties so it was important to expand it this year and welcome Duchesne County.” Educators are able to attend the all day event free of charge and will receive 8 re-licensure credits thanks to the Duchesne County and Uintah School Districts. The keynote speaker Brad Barton is well known as an inspirational speaker for educators, using magic as part of his presentation to demonstrate methods of moving students beyond negative illusions that block their way. The Education Summit will be held March 25th from 8:00am to 4:00pm at the Uintah Conference Center.
