The Nashoba SEPAC is co-hosting speaker Jonathan Mooney. This was a short notice opportunity so any help in getting the word out would be greatly appreciated.
The Northborough Southborough Special Education Parent Advisory Council (NSPAC), Nashoba SEPAC, and Shrewsbury SEPAC are hosting a virtual speaker event, “Those Kids: Learning Outside the Lines”, presented by Jonathan Mooney, on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, 6:30-8pm. This workshop features Jonathan Mooney’s personal, humorous, and research based talk on being “one of those kids” who couldn't sit still and spent elementary school chilling in the hallway with the janitor. He had low expectations surrounding him. Learn about how he beat the odds and graduated from Brown University with an Honors degree in English Literature.
Jonathan Mooney is an award winning writer, entrepreneur, and activist who did not learn to read until he was twelve years old. Jonathan has established himself as one of the foremost leaders in the neurodiversity and the learning revolution. He is a widely sought after speaker whose work has been featured in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, USA Today, HBO, NPR, ABC News, New York Magazine, The Washington Post, and The Boston Globe.

BRIDGES TO MALAWI 2023 TRIP
Developing the next generation of people who want to save the world.
High school juniors and seniors from the following Massachusetts schools, Hudson HS, Nashoba Regional HS, Maynard HS, and Marlborough HS have the opportunity to participate in our annual contest. Participants pay a registration fee and attend two 3 hour long lecture sessions on 2 different weekend days on January 15 and 29, 2022.
One set of lectures is taught by Dr. Lisse at a medical school level on diseases, such as malaria, parasitic infections, TB, and HIV/AIDS which are all too common in the Developing World. The other set of lectures is on all things Malawi (economy, geography, history, culture, etc.) and is taught by Jennifer Hardy.
Following the second set of lectures, the students are given a multiple choice test and the person who achieves the highest score gets to go to Malawi for free with the medical mission team. Other participants of the contest are invited to come along but must pay their own way. Almost all choose to come along. We take a maximum of 12 students altogether.
This once in a lifetime experience for these high school juniors and seniors is life changing—intended to help produce the next generation of those dedicated to making the world a better place.
Due to a scheduling conflict, we are rescheduling the first date of the Bridges to Malawi contest from Saturday Nov 5 to Sunday Nov 6 with a new time from 1pm to 4:30pm, still at the First United Methodist Church of Hudson at 34 Felton Street in Hudson. The date, time, and place of the 2nd set of lectures remains the same on Saturday Nov 12 from 6pm to 10pm.
Amended registration forms are available in the Guidance office.
