Educator La’Mont Geddis will inspire to beat the odds as the main speaker for the 6th Annual Parent Conference, hosted by the Virgin Islands Department of Education’s Office of the Insular Superintendent, St. Thomas-St. John District. With the theme, “Sharing a Vision of Student Success” the free conference will be held from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25, at Marriott’s Frenchman’s Reef Beach Resort on St. Thomas.

The Parent Conference is geared to parents and guardians of public school students; motivational speaker and Freedom Schools Servant Leader La’Mont Geddis will provide a riveting presentation on how the initiative has positively shaped the lives of students and their parents through interactive, accessible methods.
