Princeton Learning Cooperative has announced that Jon Lambert, owner of the Princeton Record Exchange, will be recognized at their Celebration of Self-Directed Learning from 2-4pm on April 29th.
The Self-Directed Learning Award is given to community members who took an independent educational path and have gone on to create successful and meaningful lives. “Jon’s life reflects the creativity, vision and hard work that self-directed learning embodies. We’re thrilled to have Jon share his story at this year’s celebration,” according to Princeton Learning Cooperative co-founder, Joel Hammon. The Princeton Record Exchange is listed as one of the best music stores in America by Rolling Stone magazine, CNN, Time magazine and others.
Jon said, “It is an honor to be singled out for this award by The Learning Cooperatives. There were many challenges travelling down a non-traditional path, and I am happy, if a little surprised, to have succeeded as well as I have. I have great empathy for those starting out on their own personal journeys, so it is my hope that sharing some of the principles that guided me will help them as well.”
Current teen members, parents of former members and PLC staff members will also share inspiring stories of young people taking control of their time and education. Food and drinks will be donated by: Small World Coffee; Lillipies; The Bent Spoon; McCaffrey’s; and Nomad Pizza, among others. Event sponsors include: Classical Pilates; Kenney, Chase and Costa; Shibumi Farm; Pinneo Construction. Live music will be performed by current teen members.
The event is being held at D&R Greenway’s Johnson Education Center at One Preservation Place in Princeton.
