Our Guest Speaker:

Dr. Rhoda Mhiripiri-Reed

Dr. Rhoda Mhiripiri-Reed has served in public education for over two decades. After graduating from Yale with a teaching license, Dr. Mhiripiri-Reed returned to Minnesota to begin her teaching career. Dr. Rhoda Mhiripiri-Reed later completed Harvard University’s doctoral program in Education Leadership and has since dedicated her life and career to improving the lives of others.

In 2016, Dr. Rhoda Mhiripiri-Reed became the first woman and the first person of color to serve as a Hopkins superintendent. Under her leadership, Hopkins Public Schools developed a strategic plan called Vision 2031, built upon the core belief that every student deserves a brilliant future.

Dr. Mhiripiri-Reed, alongside her team, her students, and her community, is working to reimagine our educational system from the ground up.

Your Impact:

Funds from this year’s event will support Way to Grow’s signature home visiting program, Great by Eight, reaching families prenatal through grade three in Minneapolis and surrounding suburbs. Our Family Educators deliver both virtual and in-person home visits that address each family’s resource needs, while providing parent education and support, early childhood and health education, and additional in-depth tutoring support for our elementary students.
