More than 50 teachers from BYU-I and others from around the state have been chosen to speak about a variety of religious and general topics, according to BYU-I University Relations.
“We’re excited to invite everyone to campus for Education Week again this year,” said Brett Sampson, director of university public affairs. “We have so many great teachers and such a spectrum of topics and activities this year. Whether you come on your own, with friends or with your family, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to be uplifted and strengthened.”
Keynote addresses will be given by S. Michael Wilcox, a retired institute instructor and author; Charles Andersen, the vice president of the Department of University Resources at BYU-I; Susan Grant, a BYU-I communication department adjunct faculty member; and Chris Williams, the author of Let it Go: A True Story of Tragedy and Forgiveness, according to BYU-I University Relations.
Children and youth between ages 6 and 17 will have opportunities to participate in Education Week through the age-specific classes and activities being provided by BYU-I students trained in facilitating classroom activities for children. Children under five are welcome to accompany their parents to their classes.
Early bird registration costs $35, and all children five and under are free.
Two concerts will take place during Education Week in conjunction with BYU-I’s Center Stage performing arts series. Mervin Goldstein and Vanessa Joy will be performing Thursday evening, and Hilary Weeks and Nik Day will be performing Friday evening. While these performances are open to the public, those attending Education Week can receive discounted tickets.
