Westminster's Drinko Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning Hosting Education Seminars

 Featured speakers include Dr. Blair Kucinski, former superintendent at Leechburg, and Dr. Glenn Smartchan, former superintendent at Mt. Lebanon.  Both educators are consultants to the Study Council, specializing in accountability issues related to improving teaching and learning.
