Meet our keynote speaker, PRESTON POLLARD - a 2006 Bartlett High graduate who now lives in L.A. where he is a professional skateboarder and works as a motivational speaker, actor and model.

America's Promise Alliance is working with community partners to convene 100 GradNation Community Summits through 2016. This video showcases how communities are using the summits as vehicles to create change.

Students from South Media Productions at South High School filmed and live-streamed the opening sessions from the Summit.  Watch the video here.

Anchorage's GradNation Community Summit is part of a series of 100 summits to be held around the country through 2016 as part of America's Promise's GradNation Campaign, a large and growing movement of dedicated individuals, organizations and communities working together to raise the national high school graduation rate to 90% by 2020.  Thank you to America's Promise and AT&T, and to our local partners for making the summit here in Anchorage possible:
