The Assistant Secretary of Education, Thelma Meléndez de Santa Ana, is the keynote speaker at tomorrow's Otelia Cromwell Day symposium at Smith College. She will speak on "the Administration’s strategies for education reform and the Department’s commitment to improving educational opportunities and resources for all students."
(And I was going to be really impressed, but they're putting her in Sweeney Auditorium at Sage Hall, so they aren't expecting a big crowd.)
While Otelia Cromwell Day is a Smith College celebration (Otelia Cromwell is the first known African-American graduate of Smith; the day celebrates racial diversity), the public is welcome. Sage Hall is at the end of Green Street in Northampton.
