I had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Chiquita Howard-Bostic deliver an outstanding keynote at the Education, Leadership, Humanities and Arts conference in DC. Her delivery punctuated with her energy, passion, and deep knowledge of her subject was amazing. Later I had the pleasure to talk to her and learn more about her work and research interests. She listened to all the presentations and drew upon them to facilitate very enjoyable discussions. Her effervescent personality and leadership is clearly infectious and I saw the impact she was having on her students as two of her students presented research performed under her mentorship. She is indeed a positive presence at any conference.
