Speaker Series

The Common Ground Partnership Speaker Series is aimed at connecting West Virginia students with mentors from different branches of the military. Each speaker is an expert on a variety of important topics affecting youth today. Service members from different branches often have the background to deliver speeches in a captivating and motivating manner, which is perfect for the classroom setting. Students get the chance to interact with someone in the military, while learning about important topics that are relevant and will enhance already existing academic curriculum and educational incentives.

A number of topics relevant to education, character development, citizenship and career development are offered. Those include but are not limited to:

  • Anti-bullying
  • Suicide prevention
  • Substance abuse prevention
  • Drop-out prevention
  • The American Flag
