Looking Forward to a Night of Celebration!

The Mind Trust’s inaugural edition of Celebrating Education Innovation in fall 2022 celebrated leaders, educators, families, and organizations who work tirelessly to ensure Indianapolis students have access to high-quality, equitable education. Former Indiana Fever star Tamika Catchings and former Colts player Marlin Jackson shared their passion for education in a fireside chat.

The event also honored Teresa Lubbers for her contributions in securing the passage of Indiana’s charter school law in 2001 and her tireless advocacy in support of better school options over a decades-long career as a public servant.

The next edition of Celebrating Education Innovation is scheduled for spring 2024. Contact our Senior Director of Corporate & Individual Giving Jeremy Smith at jsmith@themindtrust.org with any questions you have about our 2024 event.
