01.26.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Happy National School Choice Week! Here’s a great video to start off your morning, courtesy of the students from Success Academy Charter Schools in the Bronx. Remember to use the School Choice Week hashtag on social media, #SCW
Just a reminder for those of you in D.C., we’re hosting our NSCW celebration on Wednesday, Jan. 28 at the Cannon Caucus Room, 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. and beginning at 2:30 p.m., Heritage Foundation is hosting a conversation with Congressman Messer and Dr. Patrick Wolf. Details for both events can be found here: http://www.schoolchoiceweekdc.com/
Finally, I want to welcome AFC’s newest communications staff member, Tommy Schultz. Tommy will serve as the communications director for our state affiliate, the Tennessee Federation for Children. A seasoned communications professional, Tommy is joining us after serving as communications director for Gov. Terry Branstad’s gubernatorial campaign.
Have a great morning!
