“People Must Work Together” is the theme of the 27th annual Martin Luther King Jr. essay contest. HOPE high school students Sarah Smith and Payton Smith took second and third place in the Grades 9-10 category.
We chose the name “Open Sky Education” for a reason. We believe that we all do better work when we’re looking up.
Looking up often leads to the discovery of a cause or context that is greater than yourself. One that inspires you to serve selflessly and leads to more fulfilling work.
We refer to this as “Greater Purpose.” It’s what inspires our work in the classroom, in the board room, and in communities we serve. With this perspective, we can be true serving leaders, advancing ideas that are bigger than us, for the benefit of others.
