On the second of a two-part discussion with those involved in this transformation,  Mike Brenan of BB&T, Pamela Lackey of AT&T South Carolina, Walter McDowell of BEST NC and Anna Nelson of Spangler Companies explain their policy priorities, as well as the critical role that philanthropy has in changing education outcomes.

Part One: Business Leaders & Education

Posted on: February 28th, 2014 by admin

Carolina business leaders have a vested interest in the success of students in public schools, especially as the need for more qualified workers becomes more acute. Coalitions of current and former C-suite executives have now formed in both North and South Carolina in an effort by the business community to influence education policy while building a stronger bond between all stakeholders. The goals of the business groups include raising student achievement, addressing financial challenges in public education and ensuring a robust pipeline of well-qualified workers for the region’s employers. Mike Brenan of BB&T, Pamela Lackey of AT&T South Carolina, Walter McDowell of BEST NC and Anna Nelson of Spangler Companies lay out their initiatives in this first episode of a two-part series.
