Nakisha Hobbs, who cofounded and directs the Village Leadership Academy in Chicago, has been selected to give the 2019 commencement address Saturday, June 22, at 1:00 p.m. in the Maharishi Patanjali Golden Dome at Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa.
The Village Leadership Academy is a kindergarten through 8th-grade school with 700 students, whose focus is “to transform urban youth into global leaders” and which incorporates the Transcendental Meditation® technique throughout.
During MUM’s Changemakers Conference last spring, Ms. Hobbs shared a moving and inspiring story about what she learned from being the child of struggling teen parents and going on to found a school to empower children with backgrounds like hers.
Other innovative features of her school include a practical approach to leadership development, a world studies and social justice curriculum, and access to global travel through the World Scholars Program.
“I was most moved by her at the event,” said Jeffrey Abramson, chair of the MUM Board of Trustees. “She was articulate and authentic. She described how being a child of a teenage mom and the 12 schools she attended by the time she started college taught her the need to change education and create her own place of learning. She is indeed a changemaker and represents the next generation of leaders in education who see education more like Maharishi envisioned it.”
Ms. Hobbs is a fourth-generation educator. She holds an undergraduate degree from University of Illinois at Chicago and a master’s in early childhood education from Roosevelt University.
Prior to the Village Leadership Academy, Ms. Hobbs cofounded It Takes A Village Early Learning Centers, which provide early childhood education.
