At Harpeth Hall, honoring Martin Luther King Jr. each year serves not only as a remembrance of his life and work but also to inspire students to create positive change, treat others with kindness and respect, and give back to the community through acts of service. This school year, student leaders Kimber Corbitt, Bayona Fletcher, Jade Jordan, Nina Puckett, and Khyah Shute came together with an idea — they wanted to plan an event that would bring the entire school together in a new and interactive way to honor Dr. King.

Bears Repeating from Jess Hill: Imagining our Future Selves
  • Blog

No other profession is filled with more hope for the future than teaching. Through the years, we may see students flounder at certain times, and then, before our eyes, we see them grow and change and gain confidence and ultimately soar.

We also have the privilege and satisfaction of witnessing their growth during their time at Harpeth Hall.

If you are in the field of education and preoccupied with teaching students to think for themselves — or in any profession with a healthy skepticism surrounding the automation of your industry due to artificial intelligence — you probably have been swamped with discussions and articles about “intelligent” computer systems. The current conversation seems to contain two schools of thought. One view is that ChatGPT or any form of generative artificial intelligence will cause the end of critical thinking, or, let’s face it, the end of civilization as we know it. The other view, equally distorted, is that AI, anthropomorphized by Hollywood and sci-fi movies, will solve our problems and make life and work much more efficient.
