Fredi Lajvardi, a retired teacher from Carl Hayden High School in Phoenix, used his passion for technology to change the lives of inner-city students. He gave these teenagers something to look forward to, to be proud of, to learn creativity, to learn problem solving skills, to build teamwork, and to help them find their own passions and futures.

Lajvardi was the keynote speaker for the HYPE Career Ready® program Wednesday, speaking to Heidelberg students virtually about the possibilities in STEM fields.

Although it’s one of Heidelberg’s many long-standing traditions, this fall’s Opening Convocation – the official beginning of the 2020-21 academic year – was like no other in history.

Like so many other events during the pandemic, Convocation shifted to virtual, presented to incoming students during their AIM Hei classes this morning and simultaneously during “watch parties” in Wickham Great Hall and Herbster Chapel.
