Innovative learning in San Diego County is best achieved through teamwork from business, community and education leaders. This is why the Classroom of the Future Foundation (CFF) hosted a community reception for the new San Diego County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Paul Gothold, on Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
The networking event brought together San Diego County Superintendents, board members and leaders from the San Diego County Office of Education, Presidents and Deans from our local higher education institutions, as well as government, industry, military, and community leaders.
In addition to meeting Dr. Gothold and networking with other leaders from the community, guests enjoyed delectable appetizers, refreshing drinks, and live musical performances by a student mariachi band from the South Bay and the World Music Ensemble from San Diego Mesa College.
