October White House Wednesday


White House Wednesdays

Our White House Wednesdays series is on fire! In partnership with the White House Historical Association, each Wednesday, DreamWakers matches 4th-12th grade Civics, Social Studies, and History classrooms with professionals who have had careers either at or directly connected to the White House. Students have the opportunity to ask what really goes on behind closed doors at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and to learn about the unique academic and career pathways that can lead to a job in government. In October alone, these six #DreamSpeakers volunteered with our White House Wednesdays program:

Aditi Hardikar, former White House Liaison to the LGBTQ and Asian-American & Pacific Islander Communities

Dr. Knatokie Ford, former Senior Policy Advisor in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

Dr. Matthew Costello, Senior Historian at the White House Historical Association

Dr. Stephen F. Knott, Professor at the American Naval War College

Stewart McLaurin, President of the White House Historical Association

Zaid Hassan, former Assistant Director at the White House Business Council

Extra Credit: every student in one special classroom in St. Louis, Missouri received a gift in the mail from their White House Wednesday speaker! Learn more about this over on Medium.
