2100 Reynolda Rd
Winston-Salem NC  27106



On April 26, Wake Forest University professor and current Summit parent Melissa Harris-Perry will speak at Summit School as part of its Parent Learning Series. Dr. Harris-Perry will be the culminating speaker in Summit's two-year book study of How to Raise an Adult, by Julie Lythcott-Haims. She is the Maya Angelou Presidential Chair at Wake Forest University.

Book author Julie Lythcott-Haims served as dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University. She has spoken and written widely on the phenomenon of helicopter parenting. Harris-Perry interviewed Julie Lythcott-Haims on MSNBC in a segment called “It's time to kick overparenting to the curb.” You can watch it here:

Raising a child to be an adult who is independent and able to navigate the waters of high school and beyond is an urgent and important task. Dr. Harris-Perry has been a college professor for 20 years, serving on the faculties of the University of Chicago, Princeton, and Tulane, before joining the faculty of Wake Forest University in 2014. During those years she has also created and directed innovative community programming serving students from grade school through high school. These experiences have allowed Professor Harris-Perry to work with hundreds of young people as they navigate the journey from childhood to young adulthood.
