MNPS Academies of Nashville Student Success

Thursday, March 20, 2014

9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Tennessee Performing Arts Center, Polk Theater

Admission is FREE

MNPS has partnered with TEDxNashville to showcase students in our high schools who have implemented innovative thoughts, ideas, and programs to make their schools and communities better.  And it's being called TEDxNashvilleEd.

Throughout the semester, students have attended public speaking and student leadership workshops led by the Director of the Academies of Nashville, Dr. Chaney Mosley. Students then had the opportunity to audition for one of the twelve speaker slots. The auditions were very competitive! Each students has been paired with an adult mentor to help refine their performance.

We hope that you will come out and support those innovative and talented students. Come for the whole day or drop in for your student's performance. We look forward to sharing MNPS Academies of Nashville student talent with all of you!
