Keaton Wadzinski attends the University of Virginia and is pursuing a career in engineering. He is the Executive Director of ReinventED Lab, a program designed to bring together and activate students, entrepreneurs, educators, and community members in the Charlottesville, Virginia community to develop prototypes of the future of education. In January 2013, he helped lead a hugely successful Twitter chat with U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, which reached nearly 2 million people.
“In Destination Imagination, my voice was always valued. Even if my ideas weren’t the best, I at least had the opportunity to share,” Keaton says. “I don’t think I would be where I am today without DI. I am so thankful for this program, and more importantly, the people behind it.”
