It is always a pleasure to be able to provide accommodations to the many dedicated educators in the state volunteering their time and energies on behalf of their students.
Jay Bonstingl, national author and speaker, recently offered a two-day workshop on leadership skills for a group of middle school students from the Masenic School District. These students, in small teams, reflected on their school identifying the strengths they observed as well as areas they believed could be improved. Each group then developed an action plan that they presented to the others as well as to parents and their school administrators at the culminating session. It was recommended that the students also present their work to their local school board. It was a great to have a younger group of students take advantage of our facility.The independent film series, Community Cinema, continues to offer thought-provoking films each month at 2 Pillsbury Street in partnership with New Hampshire Public Television. Each film is followed by a discussion led by a panel of experts familiar with the topics portrayed. We have discussed the role of Indians in films throughout the years; mining in Kentucky; young Christian, Muslim, and Jewish leaders; and musicians with both physical and intellectual disabilities.
