A Message from Our President

Mar 10, 2016

Dear Friends,

This past weekend, I had the honor of addressing some 650 attendees at TEDxSanAntonio. For those who may not be familiar with TEDx San Antonio, it is an offshoot of the international TED conference, founded in 1984 for the single purpose of spreading ideas. The acronym stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. The TEDx program gives communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialog through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDxSanAntonio is planned and coordinated independently.

StoryCorps

The StoryCorps Mobile Booth recently traveled to San Antonio to collect personal stories that will be archived at the Library of Congress. It was an opportunity for Mary Pritchard and her teenage daughter Samantha to talk about a difficult time, when Mary had to tell five-year-old Samantha that her father had died. 

"You just stared straight ahead out that floral window, and you smiled. And I remember thinking, 'Does she understand?'"
