Dear Mathissexy (obviously it used my real name):
As Chancellor of City Colleges of Chicago (CCC), I am constantly seeking new and innovative opportunities to build partnerships that will help ensure student success. I’ve come across something that I think will challenge our thinking and spark some deep discussion about our education system as we begin the process of reinventing the City Colleges of Chicago.
You may have heard or even seen the recently released movie, “Waiting for Superman.” It’s a deeply personal exploration of the current state of public education in the U.S. and how it is affecting our children. We have partnered with United Way of Metro Chicago and will host a private viewing of this movie. I would like to personally invite you to this screening as well as to be an audience participant in the panel discussion that will take place immediately after the movie. This will be a great opportunity for us to collectively acknowledge the many problems faced by students then hear some of the solutions to these issues from the panel, and how we can address the situation from a CCC Reinvention perspective.
Please join me and the CCC leadership team at this outing on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at the ShowPlace ICON Theater, 150 West Roosevelt Road. This special screening will start at 11:30 a.m., with the panel discussion ending by 2:30 p.m. This event is invite only. A tickets is required for attendance and will be forwarded to Presidents and Vice-Chancellors for distribution. You will need to provide your own transportation to and from the venue. Free parking is available.
Please rsvp by Monday, November 8, 2010 to Cheiko High @ email@example.com.
I look forward to sharing this experience with you.
Cheryl L. Hyman
