Architects of Change Live is our conversation series with a mission. It celebrates individuals who challenge what is, imagine what can be, and move humanity forward.

After attending Maria Shriver's Architects of Change Live conversation with Shonda Rhimes, OLP students were inspired to emulate the event at our school. OLP’s inaugural Architects of Change at School event was held on Wednesday, November 30, 2016, with 750 high school girls, 80 faculty and staff, and roughly 30 members of the extended community in attendance.

This first conversation was facilitated by Elizabeth Hanczor ‘17 and Marlene Vollbrechthausen Perez ‘17, who interviewed OLP's two leaders and dynamic duo, Dr. Lauren Lek and Mrs. Jessica Hooper. In just three years, OLP has seen an increase in STEM-related classes, initiatives and programs, as well as augmentations in the arts and athletics programs. Following the same format used by Ms. Shriver, our two students took the audience on a journey into the personal and professional lives of both women.

On March 15, 2017, Elizabeth Hanczor '17 and Delia Garland '17 interviewed Cyndi Peterson, MD – a U.S. Navy flight surgeon, dermatologist, speaker, author and mother of five. Cyndi shared her incredible story and faith journey that resulted in her recent book, Waiting for a Miracle: One mother's journey to unshakable faith.
