Bay Area Alumni and Champions Celebrate Scott Morgan

It started with an idea fueled by passion and people. Fifteen years later, Scott’s vision of Education Pioneers continues to catalyze a network of thousands of Fellows, Alumni, Partners, and champions to make the education sector more equitable through leadership.

Alumni and champions in the Bay Area gathered to thank Scott for 15 years of leadership and impact.

It was a celebratory evening for the EP Bay Area network, filled with toasts, memories, and plans to continue Scott’s legacy of leadership and impact.
