Charlotte Amalie High School will kick off the first of a four-part lecture series on Wednesday in the school’s Ruth E. Thomas Auditorium. The Ambassador Terence Todman Lecture Series debuts with Labor Commissioner Albert Bryan Jr. speaking on the topic of youth and employment.
“Sowing the Seeds of Growth: The Expansion of Our Human Capital” begins at 6 p.m.
CAHS Principal Carmen Howell said, “We are looking forward to having our parents, business partners, alumni and community come out and join us as we try to enlighten ourselves on some of these issues.”
“Commissioner Bryan will be addressing the realities of the ‘brain drain’ so often felt here in the territory,” Howell said, adding that “it is important for us to hear what kind of skills employers are looking for.”
Other lecture topics include health issues (Feb. 21), tourism (March 21), and legal issues (May 2).
Howel said, “For this lecture series, our development team zeroed in on some timely topics, and we are hoping that we can create greater awareness in these four areas within the community.”
