Progeny Visit to Pittsburgh
Last week we visited Bill Strickland and the Manchester Bidwell Corporation in Pittsburgh. He is an amazing guy and MBC is an amazing place.
During one fast and furious 3 hour session we learned more than we did all year.
We talked about everything under the sun…tutoring ratios, academic testing standards, fund raising, corporate sponsors, honor codes, transportation of kids, nutrition, and developing our own individual style.
They consistently urged us to think differently and to be bold.
Below are some pics from their facility. Notice the natural light. It’s one of those buildings that somehow make you feel like a better person. This is something that we are also shooting for.
