like to have an orientation session by phone with a SMARTHINKING representative, contact Beth.

Greg Walker.

(including self-nominations). The 6th generation Wo Learning Champions (WLC VI) should
fulfill all the responsibilities listed below.

To apply, submit a one-page application narrative, demonstrating how the applicant meets
these nomination criteria:
   • demonstrated leadership or a strong interest in developing leadership skills
   • commitment to putting learning first
   • commitment to innovations
   • commitment to sharing knowledge and expertise
