Mark says, “I’m naturally thrilled with the awards that Answering Why is winning, but I feel keenly that this recognition is not about me. It’s the message that is resonating with readers, at a time when we desperately need to engage young people differently and inspire them to perform at a higher level. I have always wanted to make a bigger difference in education and workforce development. Now, it’s my hope that these awards will further that goal and help spread this message to an even wider audience.”
