I am so excited about a project I have been working on with students and their teachers in Ten Sleep, Chugwater, and Fort Washakie. Next week, the students will have a live, virtual discussion with Dana Perino, best-selling author and Fox News host from noon-1 p.m. MDT on April 7. The students have developed discussion questions on a range of issues including leadership, the media, politics, and Dana’s Wyoming roots. All Wyoming students and their teachers are invited to watch the discussion live on Zoom or Facebook. The discussion will be available on-demand afterward. Registration is NOT required, the event is FREE, and it will be available to the public afterward on-demand. Event link: https://zoom.us/j/
