The HPISD Parent Education Committee (PEC) and Highland Park United Methodist Church (HPUMC) are partnering to bring a powerful, insightful and timely event to the community. Headlining the evening, focused on the power of words, is former Dallas Police Chief David Brown. Join PEC from 7-8:45 p.m. Monday, Nov. 18, at HPUMC for a dynamic keynote presentation and a diverse panel of experts.

Sharing from painful life experiences and loss to critical command in the national spotlight, Chief Brown will offer leadership learning and a tender heart for people.
