The Leadership Academy on Thursday hosts the latest installment in its Celebrate What’s Right Luncheon series from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn University of Memphis, 3700 Central Ave.

“Celebrate What’s Right: School Principals Making Great Strides in Urban Education” will feature a panel of school principals, including Michelle Armstrong of Middle College High School; Jamal McCall of KIPP Memphis; Mike McIntyre of Germantown High School; Jim Pohlman of Memphis Catholic High School; Leviticus Pointer of Vance Middle School; and Bill Taylor of St. George’s Independent School.

MCS school board commissioner Tomeka Hart will moderate the discussion.

Launched in 2007 and sponsored by the First Tennessee Foundation since 2008, the series consists of six annual luncheons celebrating the positive aspects of life in the Bluff City. Past speakers include AutoZone CEO Bill Rhodes, Hyde Foundation president Barbara Hyde, Memphis Tigers basketball coach Josh Pastner and FedEx CIO Rob Carter.

The Leadership Academy’s mission, as stated on its website, is to “recruit, cultivate and engage diverse talent in order to move Memphis forward.”

Registration for the luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. outside the hotel’s grand ballroom. Visit leadershipacademy.org for more information.
