the wonderful world of veena.

double duty.

Throughout the year the Clinton School, in partnership with various organizations throughout Little Rock and Arkansas, brings numerous speakers to the city to speak on issues ranging from education to sustainability to food, averaging about 2 to 3 speakers per week.

This week itself I have been lucky enough to see Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano as well as Rick Phillips, Executive Officer for Community Matters, a California-based organization dedicated to stopping the epidemic of bullying throughout the country.  And tomorrow is a panel about the West Memphis Three case, including appearances by all three of the defense attorneys on the case.

Once a speaker visits Little Rock, a short write-up is posted on the Clinton School's Blog for viewing by anyone who might be interested.  Along with these posts are articles about various other things happening at the school, including information about current and former students, faculty, and staff.

Usually the posts are written by Ben, the Director of Communications, but occasionally he allows students to help out with the writing.  I volunteered to write the post for Rick Phillips' speech last night, and it is now posted for anyone who would like to read it.

Hopefully I'll have get the opportunity to write a few more as the semester goes on.  If I do, I'll be sure to post the link on here for anyone that is interested.
