Students attend the Sacramento Speaker Series…for free!

Did you know that every year, Choices Charter School invites 5 to 10  students to attend the Sacramento Speaker Series events for free? On top of it, the students may arrive early and participate in a special Q&A session with the speaker before the actual presentation begins.  It provides interested students with an opportunity to expand their horizons a bit, so to speak.

The next sessions are:

April 5, 7pm:  Julia Gillard, Former Prime Minister of Australia

May 3, 7pm:  Cheryl Strayed, author of New York Times bestselling memoir, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail
