Listen | This education leader says ‘resilience is in our DNA’

Voiced by Amazon Polly

In the third episode of The Resilience Zone, Elijah interviews education leader Donnell Cannon. Cannon was a principal in Edgecombe County, Elijah’s home county, for 5 years and is now the executive director of district transformation and redesign for the school district.

The two talk about resources — what they are, where to find them, and how to utilize them for resilience. Cannon also shares why he believes that resilience is in his DNA and in others’ DNA, too.

The Resilience Zone is a project of The Rural Opportunity Institute with support from EducationNC. Our executive producers are Andrew Harding and Rachel Hyder. Our supervising producer and editor is Alli Lindenberg with help from Ryan Jones.
