The Inception of
The WHIGHAM SCHOOL
In early 2022 Steve Whigham began the official launch of The Whigham School. The idea for the school was the result of three challenges facing us:
(1) the need for a more global mindset of the United States' future leaders
in order for us to succeed in the 21st Century,
(2) the desire to see college-level education become more impactful and produce leaders better equipped to do substantial good in the world, and
(3) the lack of empathy and goodwill towards others that is growing within the American Culture.
Steve architected a new, better way to prepare our next generation for the challenges and opportunities the 21st Century is bringing them. It’s called contextual education. It’s not a replacement for college-level training in a profession, but, better, an enhancement.
