-- Box Tops for Education is hosting its third annual Town Hall discussion to facilitate conversations on K-8 education and ways to support our children's academic success. The event will take place at the Georgia Aquarium on Thursday, April 3, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. The invitation-only event will be made available for viewing via webcast on Hello Beautiful (www.hellobeautiful.com).

Celebrity mom and Grammy Award-winning artist Monica, former CNN anchor and television personality T.J. Holmes, Dr. Carlton E. Brown, President of Clark Atlanta University, Ronald Skeete of Georgia Children's Aid Society, 2014 Georgia Teacher of the Year Jemelleh Coes and Erica Jensen, Senior Manager of Integrated Marketing Communications at General Mills will participate in a solution-oriented panel discussion focused on community involvement and a shared commitment to the future of America's children. The event will unite parents, teachers and community leaders in an effort to make a real impact on education in our school systems.

"At Box Tops for Education, we believe every child deserves the chance to reach their full potential. We are thrilled to be able to rally the community behind our purpose and talk about ways to ensure that children receive the best education possible," said marketing manager Tsubasa Tanaka.


With Box Tops for Education, parents and the community-at-large can make a real difference in our children's education. In 2012, Atlanta's Beecher Hills Elementary School raised enough money to purchase orchestra uniforms for students. This year, the school is raising funds to launch a new hands-on Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) lab.
