About Lawrence
map
Lawrence Massachusetts is located 25 miles north of Boston just off of Route 495. Built in the 1840's and planned as the nation's first industrial city and testimony to this concept are the massive mill buildings that line the Merrimack River, the striking clock and bell towers and the awesome Great Stone Dam.

The strength of the harnessed Merrimack River and its canals served to fuel the Lawrence mills that produced textiles for the American and European markets. The city was a world leader in production of cotton and woolen textiles by the early 20th century.

Lawrence has always been a multi ethnic and multi cultural city with a high proportion of foreign born residents thereby giving it the name "The Immigrant City". Waves if immigrants coming to Lawrence to work in the mills beginning in the Late 1800's and continuing to the present day have made Lawrence truly a home to everyone,

Today, Lawrence remains an urban center in which 35% of its economy is still based of manufacture. The city is still a hub of textile, apparel and shoe companies such as Malden Mills, KGR, Grieco Brothers, New Balance and Cardinal Shoe. Combined with its affordable space and convenient location, newer companies in technology, health care, and manufacturing have chosen to locate in Lawrence.

Lawrence offers recreational, historical and cultural attractions along with people committed to living and working in a safe environment. The city boasts sailing on the Merrimack, Heritage State Park, art exhibitions and a wide range of cultural activities such as ethnic festivals that celebrate Lawrence's diversity and rich heritage.

EMERGING LEADERS: Changing the Educational Paradigm

As educational leaders attempt to improve the state of public education in cities like Lawrence, it is imperative that the largest stake holders of local education reform, the community members, are involved in the conversation.

This event provides young professionals in the private, non-profit, and government sectors with a chance to voice their thoughts and interests with regard to ongoing reform efforts within the Lawrence public school system.

Join us for a discussion about how educational leaders are reforming local education and how YOU can be part of the solution.

Following the discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to network with fellow educators and area professionals over light beverages and hors d’oeuvres.

     

This event is FREE for all GLYPN Members & Educators. Educators please bring a work ID.

All other attendees will be asked to  pay a $10 cover charge.

Kip Winger
with Stomping Melvin
Kip Winger, the multi-platinum recording artist, may be known best for his success with Winger and his early days as a bass player with Alice Cooper. However the range and scope of his musical journey can be more fully experienced in his solo albums, This Conversation Seems Like A Dream, Songs From The Ocean Floor, From The Moon To The Sun and his most recent composition Ghosts for string orchestra, piano and harp.In 1995, after his hugely successful run with Winger, Kip built a studio in the hills of Santa Fe, New Mexico and started writing and producing music without limits. "It was incredibly freeing to connect to music without any preconceived ideas about what it needed to be or what niche it needed to fill." It is in Kip's solo work that he has been able to exercise the breadth of his talents as a composer. London's Classic Rock Magazine called him "one of the most gifted composers and arrangers in the rock genre" and praised his "compulsion to experiment."Over the years, Kip has continued to pursue his interest in composition. He patterned his course of study after the intensive one-on-one relationships favored by many composers. He sought out such masters as Edgar Grana, who holds a Masters from Juilliard and currently teaches composition at the School of Visual Arts in New York City; University of New Mexico Professor of Theory and Composition, Richard Hermann; and Professor Michael Kurek from the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University. Professor Kurek has praised him for his "great ear and innate musical sensitivity" resulting in "beautifully crafted phrases and nuance."Aside from his powerful solo acoustic shows and touring with Winger, Kip was the lead singer for the Alan Parsons Live Project. He has performed or recorded with the likes of Alice Cooper, Mark Farner, Roger Daltrey, Neal Schon and Bob Dylan.The fifth studio album, KARMA by Winger, was released in November 2009 and made the top 10 best lists of 2009 in virtually every rock website and magazine.The Tucson Symphony Orchestra became the first orchestra to perform a C F Kip Winger composition with the world premiere of Ghosts in the MasterWorks Chamber Orchestra Series in the 2009/10 season. The San Francisco Ballet's debut of Ghosts in February, 2010 will feature the collaborative work between world-renowned choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and Winger.
