St. Gregory’s new mission includes the commitment to create innovators and to develop innovative mindsets for our students, and having read this book recently, I know of few more inspirational stories of innovation among youth than is demonstrated by William Kamkwamba.  I shared this video with our student body this morning.

I highly suggest Kamkwamba’s book for schools seeking new titles for school-wide summer reading, and I know I am intrigued by how we might at St. Gregory do more with this book, including summer reading,  building our own windmills, and perhaps seeking to support ingenuity and innovation by and among youth in developing nations.
