Aireal Anderson is the Community Outreach Coordinator at Purdue Polytechnic High School – North

“Surge is an opportunity to grow as a servant leader in education. I believe in Surge’s ability to shape the leaders of their program, and I’ve witnessed the incredible outcomes first-hand in the growth of two very close colleagues that I’ve looked to for mentorship as I define my leadership pathway. I also want to build the confidence to dismantle the barriers of underserved and underrepresented populations. I believe in Surge’s reputation, and I’m excited for the opportunity to be in the rooms with other passionate and like-minded individuals; it will challenge me to look inward at my passions to solidify my purpose in education.”
