Announcing the 2022 McLendon speaker
At the State of the School presentation on January 13, Head of School Tracie Catlett announced that the 2022 McLendon Faculty and Parent Education Speaker will be author and speaker Emily Esfahani Smith. Ms. Smith is the author of the international bestseller The Power of Meaning as well as an international speaker who has delivered dozens of keynote addresses and workshops at corporations, conferences, non-profit organizations, libraries, universities, and high schools around the country and world.
Her articles and essays have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, and other publications. She has also appeared on NBC’s TODAY Show, CBS This Morning, and NPR.
We are fortunate to provide this dynamic programming thanks to the generosity of the McLendon Endowment established by Charles McLendon, co-founder and first board chair of Greensboro Day School. The McLendon Endowment supports the Greensboro Day School’s position as the Triad leader in education that transcends the school classroom.
