Mount Morris Talks Education on Thurs, Oct, 11.
And we’re talking it with someone who knows—
Dr. Sandye Johnson!

Dr. Sandye P Johnson

Sandye Poitier Johnson, renowned educator with a career that spans four decades, retired principal of Thurgood Marshall Academy, former adjunct professor at City College and adjunct professor at Kean College, New Jersey, knows what it takes to turn a school around.

She did what it takes to make a Title I public school an International Baccalaureate World School.

She has what it takes to continue the fight for quality education. And she’s won accolades to prove it throughout her career—from the National Council of Negro Women’s Mary McLeod Bethune Award and the Dr. Martin Luther King Measure of a Woman Award to the Time Warner Principal of Excellence Award and more.

Join us at 6:30 PM, Thursday, October 11, in the Pelham Fritz Center in Marcus Garvey Park, 18 MMPW (aka 5th Ave) & W 122 Street, for Mount Morris Talks! and hear Sandye’s successes firsthand.

Mount Morris Talks! logoMount Morris Talks! is a series of conversations between the community and leaders, news makers, artists, authors and thinkers who live in the Harlem area. MMPCIA is proud to sponsor this series and offers it free of charge to the community.
