Moving Forward: A Conversation with Dr. Luvelle Brown and Mayor Svante Myrick

Tuesday, September 5 at 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Emerson Suites

Please join us for a unique opportunity to engage with two of Ithaca’s public leaders: Ithaca City School District Superintendent Dr. Luvelle Brown and Mayor Svante Myrick.  

The two will reflect on the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, and engage in a dialogue about how the Ithaca community can move forward.

Luvelle Brown has served as the superintendent of the Ithaca City School District since 2011. He was named to the National School Board Association’s “20-To-Watch” as well as the 2017 New York State School Superintendent of the Year. Brown is also a native of Charlottesville and earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Virginia. 

Svante Myrick was elected as the first African-American mayor of Ithaca in 2011 at the age of 24. He had previously been elected to the city’s Common Council while still an undergraduate student at Cornell. This past spring, he was named to Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30.”

The discussion will be moderated by Sean Eversley Bradwell, director of programs and outreach at Ithaca College.
