MPS Board Member Graduates from School Board Leadership Academy

Our current MPS Board Secretary, Dr. Umit Yapanel wanted to share a joyful graduation event that took place in Santa Clara.

Our current MPS Board Secretary, Dr. Umit Yapanel wanted to share a joyful graduation event that took place in Santa Clara. Magnolia was recognized by Santa Clara County of Education Board for our attendance into the School Board Academy.

Dr. Yapanel was part of an experimental cohort of school board members, both coming from public and charter schools in Santa Clara County. The cohort was organized by American Leadership Forum and aimed at creating a peaceful and prejudice-free platform for both charter and public school board members to get to know each other, learn of the problems of each other and simply create lifelong connections while getting trained on becoming mindful next generation leaders. They had a total of 6 sessions. 

Dr. Yapanel benefited greatly from this program and encouraged all of Magnolia to join in such discussion/program opportunities locally. 

Everyone has one goal, to serve kids better!
