As the Interim President of Bethune-Cookman University, I would like to welcome you to 4th Annual Education & Social Justice Conference. In the past, the conference has attracted mostly school educators and administrators; however, this year we will be expanding our effort to include a multi-disciplinary approach and a solution-focused conference covering diverse topic areas for a wider range of human and youth service professions.
During my tenure as a county and circuit judge, I witnessed first-hand the numerous factors that negatively impacted those juveniles and adults who came before the court. To this end, we are excited about the conference and the opportunity to host an engaging and highly relevant convening of educators, lawyers, judges, law enforcement professionals, academicians, physical and mental health professionals, business professionals, media professionals, politicians, non-profit agencies, and concerned citizens. Through the discussions, we anticipate dialogue which will help us to address the myriad of social justice issues facing our nation. Join us for this problem-solving conference. I look forward to seeing you in beautiful Daytona Beach for the Fourth Annual Education and Social Justice Conference, June 24-26, 2018.
Judge Hubert L. Grimes (ret.)
