David Williams, Headmaster of Glendale Preparatory Academy of the Great Hearts Academies, will speak about liberal education and teaching opportunities at the Great Hearts schools at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, in the Drawing Room of Baylor's Memorial Residence Hall, 1425 S. Seventh St.

The Great Hearts Academies is a consortium of public charter schools in the Phoenix area. The schools have a low student-to-teacher ratio and are focused on the classics and liberal arts.

"The ultimate goal of the organization is to graduate 'great-hearted' young men and women who possess a sense of destiny and purpose that is directed to the service of the greater good," according to the schools' mission statement. "By engaging in an intense and formative dialogue about the great books and ideas of Western Culture, by conversing with peers and teachers who also seek the truth, students come to understand more fully what it means to be a human being."

The information session is free and open to the public. To arrange a one-on-one conversation with Williams, contact the Honors College Coordinator of Communications Petra Carey or Honors College Dean Thomas Hibbs.
