Dyslexic advocate talks to Eagle Hill students

Eagle Hill Southport School students learned first-hand from dyslexic advocate Dean Bragonier on what empowerment means and how to turn adversity into accomplishment during EHSS’s recent lecture.

Upper school student (grades 6, 7 and 8) enjoyed a candid, casual conversation about the benefits of “thinking out of the box,” and listened to Bragonier’s experience last summer when he completed a 50-mile “Round-the-Vineyard Swim” to raise awareness of dyslexia. Many questions included potential shark encounters and the scariest moments of his journey.

Based in Cambridge, Mass, Bragonier also joined EHSS for an evening presentation with community members as part of EHSS’s Community Lecture Series. This program is funded in partnership with the William Randolph Hearst Foundation. All lectures are free and open to the public. Next year’s guest lectures and dates will be announced early fall.
