Four learners from Victory Place @ Coppell had the opportunity to hear speaker, David Priess, Director of Analytic Services, Analytic Advantage, Inc. & Former CIA Daily Intelligence Briefer at the World Affairs Council of Dallas luncheon on Thursday, October 20. He is the author of the book The President’s Book of Secrets which chronicles the history of the daily intelligence brief presented to America’s Presidents from Kennedy to Obama. Dr. Priess shared firsthand knowledge of the intelligence mission to provide accurate, timely, and objective information to help the president make the best possible decisions on behalf of our nation. This experience provided valuable insight to the learners as they conduct their own research as part of the current Model United Nations unit. Learners were able to connect their classroom experiences to real world scenarios as well as interact with World Affairs Council members as they modeled lifelong learning.
