Mike McFadden, Greg LaMere
Jon Koznick introduced our speaker Mike McFadden.  Mike ran for the US Senate against Senator Franken in 2014 and during his 14 months campaigning he had the opportunity to meet many Minnesotans.   He shared with us his passion for education and goal of solving the achievement gap in our country.
Mike has a passion for education and is on the board of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and Tesfa International Schools. He shared some of the successes that both of these non-traditional schools are having with inner city students and shared how we can get involved in this Green Shoots education movement in our country.
