Innovators: Thank a Teacher Today

As innovators, we make progress every day to develop new  technologies and services that will support and sustain life, feed the world, and fuel it.  We develop new apps to connect, to inform and to diagnose.  We’ve build a world beyond what our grandparents or parents ever imagined. What we do matters.  More importantly, this next generation will give life to new innovations, some we can only yet imagine.

As graduations commence here in Arizona, the Arizona Bioindustry Association gathered together 21 students from Arizona’s High Schools and Universities who have been selected to represent our future and present their work at the AZBio Expo on May 30th in the Student Discovery Zone sponsored by Northern Arizona University.   To see the list of students and their projects, please click here.

The students will be be attending the AZBio Expo on May 30th and today’s bioscience leaders will have the opportunity to visit the students in the Student Discovery Zone and to learn about their work and  to encourage them in their efforts.

It is a way for the industry leaders of today to to connnect with and encourage the innovators and industry leaders of tomorrow.

As important as these short conversations will be, none of this is possibe without the teachers who spent more that just a few minutes to encourage and inspire.  Teachers do it every day.

If you , like so many of us, will be attending commencements this May or June to congratulate graduates from Kindergarten through Doctorate Programs, please take a moment to seek out a teacher and thank them for what they do.  Together, we are building our innovation  industries.  Through their efforts, they are shaping our future.

Have a great weekend and to all of of the  graduates, and the family members who helped them along their journey, CONGRATULATIONS
