TEMPE, Ariz. – June 28, 2010 – Founded by Dr. Douglas B. Reeves, The Leadership and Learning Center has consistently grown its US and international presence as a major force and pioneer in helping to increase student achievement in the most challenging schools and educational systems. Now, in support of continued growth, “The Center” has selected leading PR, social media and full-service marketing agency Zion & Zion to organize and formalize the company’s public relations and social media campaign and outreach.

“I’m extremely proud of our work with educators around the globe, especially our work in high-poverty, high-minority schools and our ground-breaking work in 90/90/90 schools exhibiting 90% poverty, 90% minority and 90% of students meeting or exceeding standards.  Ours is a mission with purpose far beyond the commercial, and we looked to a PR firm that was going to truly get that at their core and have the necessary level of passion to work as a true partner in driving student achievement.  We’ve found that with Zion & Zion, and their work thus far has been exemplary,” stated Founder and CEO Dr. Douglas B. Reeves.

“Our firm is pleased to have become a partner in The Center’s mission and we’re kicking off our activities with a rapid and aggressive thrust into various areas of social media in order to promote The Center’s upcoming Data Teams Summit being held in Vail, Colo., on June 29 and 30. Also in the works are various high profile media opportunities for The Center and its leadership,” said Zion & Zion CEO Aric Zion.
