Laura will Emcee alongside a distinguished list of speakers including Grammy Award winning and star of Hamilton Leslie Odom Jr., journalist, producer and philanthropist Soledad O’Brien and best selling author of The Happiness Advantage Shawn Acre.

This is indeed a special moment for me as it was the speech therapists in the Plymouth Public School District that worked with me for over 5 years as a young child that helped me learn how to speak. I will always remain grateful to the resources of public school, my uncle who served as the Plymouth Public School District Superintendent, my aunt who was a teacher and librarian and my parents for recognizing I needed the resources. It is an honor to work with the NSBA.  — Laura Schwartz
