Save the Date – 2014 Night of Celebration: Little Hands, Big Dreams

On behalf of our co-chairs Edward Monser of Emerson & Lee Marshall of Bryan Cave, it is our pleasure to invite you to save Thursday, May 8th, 2014 for the 4th Annual SLLIS Night of Celebration: Little Hands, Big Dreams at Palladium St. Louis.

We’ll celebrate with cocktail hour, student performances, dinner and an auction.  Master of Ceremonies Gilberto Pinela will guide the festivities and special guest Kim Tucci will serve as our auctioneer. All proceeds from the Night of Celebration: Little Hands, Big Dreams support SLLIS’ ongoing capital expansion & enhance students’ curricular experiences.

SLLIS has many milestones to celebrate in 2014; completing our 5th school year, approved charter renewal through 2019, and authorization of The French School & The Spanish School as International Baccalaureate World Schools. It is with this spirit of achievement that we will honor outstanding local leaders in three award categories:

Social Equity: Dr. William Danforth & The Honorable Frankie Muse Freeman

Love of Language: Jane Robert

Global Understanding: The St. Louis Mosaic Project (accepted by Betsy Cohen)

“2014 is truly a milestone year for SLLIS. We are proud to honor those who have made an impact on the past, present and future of the St. Louis community. The legacy of their leadership serves as an example to every child in our schools,” says Rhonda Broussard, Founder and President of SLLIS. Learn more about our amazing honorees here.
