Angela Duckworth


Phoenix Academy is proud to announce Angela Duckworth as the keynote speaker for the 2017 Scholarship Luncheon. Angela is an author and Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania.  Angela studies grit and self-control, two attributes that are distinct from IQ and yet powerfully predict success and well-being. Her first book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, debuted May 3, 2016 as an immediate New York Times bestseller.  For more information read Angela's Bio.

The luncheon will also honor two literacy champions of our community - Charles M. "Mike" Harper and Eugene Willis Skinner. The late Eugene Willis Skinner is the recipient of the Mactier/Clark Literacy Educator Literacy Award and the late Charles M. "Mike" Harper is the recipient of the Holland Advocate Award.
