Future educators gather at Muskingum for statewide conference, with keynote address by NBA legend Jerry Lucas

JERRY LUCASMore than 600 of Ohio’s future educators gathered at Muskingum University on March 9 for the 21st annual state conference of the Future Educators Association Ohio (OFEA Ohio).

A total of 35 OFEA chapters participated in the conference which featured student competitions in multimedia, chapter displays, lesson planning public speaking, and writing/creating children’s books. In addition, outstanding FEA Ohio chapters were honored.

A wide range of seminars and workshops were also offered on topics such as professional dress and conduct, how to stop bullying, college choices, effective communications, children’s literature, managing money, teaching science and mathematics, using social media and career exploration.

NBA legend and author Jerry Lucas (pictured here) was the keynote speaker. Lucas’ later career has focused on cultivating ideas and methods for fun and easy memory-retention. The resulting methods are known as The Lucas Learning System and have earned him the title of “Doctor Memory.”
