BATON ROUGE, LAThe Baton Rouge Alliance for Students announced the 2022-23 class of CHANGEMAKERS, Wednesday morning. Participants in the program are empowered to become Baton Rouge community leaders with the knowledge and skills to address complex education issues. The thirty CHANGEMAKERS were honored at a breakfast reception announcing their participation in the program. Over the next ten months, program participants will deepen their understanding of Baton Rouge’s education ecosystem through exposure to current and future issues impacting education in our community. 

Participants were selected from among seventy applicants representing various constituencies with diverse backgrounds in Baton Rouge’s corporate, nonprofit, and public sectors. As CHANGEMAKERS they will have the opportunity to visit local schools, engage with national and local education leaders, and explore topics facing Baton Rouge’s K-12 education landscape.
