Wednesday presents an opportunity for the Antioch community to meet Dr. Shawn Joseph, new Director of Schools for Metro Public Schools.

He will be at Faith Life Church, 917 Bell Road (inside the Global Mall), in Antioch from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for a “Listen & Learn” Session focused on the Antioch and Cane Ridge Clusters.

“The Board has said to me since the beginning that community engagement is a top priority,” said Dr. Joseph in a statement on the MNPS website. “I couldn’t agree more, and these Listen and Learn sessions establish a theme of openness and inclusion that will drive my administration. We have already begun work in this area by opening up our principal hiring process. Let’s keep the community momentum around Metro Schools going as we plan farther into the future, and have a little fun while we’re at it.”

Also attending will be District 6 School Board Representative Tyese Hunter, District 7 School Board Representative Will Pinkston, and District 4 Representative and Board Vice-Chair Anna Shepherd.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. with a gallery walk and popsicle party. At 6:30, the open mic meeting with Dr. Joseph will begin.

Childcare will be provided.
