Using his unique path to advocacy, Willie Carver uses his voice to speak in support of marginalized students in Kentucky. Mr. Carver will address the challenges and great opportunities for our LGBTQ, BIPOC, and Appalachian students. By critiquing the systems in which they must operate, Willie reflects on his own upbringing in Eastern Kentucky and uses those experiences as a way to create hope, inclusion, and space for their stories. As the 2022 Kentucky Teacher of the Year, Mr. Carver brought these truths to the United States Congress when testifying about the very real physical and emotional challenges LGBTQ students and teachers face. During this session, Willie will share not only his experiences, but a vision for future advocacy to protect students so ALL may thrive.
