When Supt. Brian Davis was in high school back in Jerome, Michigan, his mom came home one day after a visit with his high school counselor. She didn't have good news. The counselor had said that it was unlikely Brian would succeed in college, and that it would be best for him to just find a job after graduating from high school. This assessment angered Brian and it fueled his determination to choose a much different path. Brian not only became the first member of his family to earn a college degree, but in February 2015, he will also earn his doctorate. It's been quite a journey for Brian so far. The reflections he shares in this podcast provide a number of life lessons for everyone. Certainly, Brian's story has shaped the way he leads Holland Public Schools. Check it out.
