(SAVANNAH, GA) Dawn Baker spoke at Savannah High School (SHS), in the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System (SCCPSS) District’s inaugural Passport to Excellence Lecture Series.

Baker was the second speaker in the SCCPSS Passport to Excellence Lecture Series at her alma mater, Savannah High School, now located at 400 Pennsylvania Avenue. The series is made up of three lectures featuring presentations from accomplished individuals who previously attended or graduated from SCCPSS, sharing their unique career journeys and the insights they have learned about success and how to achieve it.

“I believe as good citizens, all of us should look for opportunities to partner with the schools,” Baker added. “The Passport to Excellence program is unique. I believe it’s the first time the school system is showcasing people as living examples of what the students can become if they get a good education and set their goals high.”

Movie producer Stratton Leopold was the first presenter in the series at Savannah Arts Academy. Baker was the second lecturer in the series, and Howard Morrison will be the final presenter in this 2015-2016 series. Morrison will speak on Thursday, January 21, 2016, at Woodville-Tompkins Technical and Career High School.

The presentations are free and open to the public, but reservations are required to attend. To RSVP, please contact Cynthia Wright at cynthia.wright@carriagetradepr.com. The Passport to Excellence Series is sponsored by JCB North America, Healthy Savannah, 24E, AT&T, Carriage Trade PR and Cecilia Russo Marketing.
