Alumna Author Honored on GOOD Magazine’s List of 100 People Pushing the World Forward

Isa Adney, Author, Speaker, Host, and Consultant for higher education, was recently selected as one of the GOOD Magazine’s GOOD 100, which honors 100 incredible people moving the world forward through “doing.” The worldwide awards program is a project of GOOD, the global community of people who give a damn. Isa Adney is recognized for her groundbreaking book, blog, and brand, Community College Success, which helps students break the cycles of poverty through education.  

The GOOD 100 issue hits newsstands March 26, 2013. Created in 2009, the GOOD 100 was designed to identify and honor the catalysts who drive change in their communities in creative and inspiring ways.  They are artists, activists, and entrepreneurs—all are innovators from the worlds of education, design, business, technology, policy, environment and food. Curated by GOOD, its advisory board, and former GOOD 100 honorees, the GOOD 100 are emblematic of pragmatic idealism and creative engagement at its best.   

Isa is forwarding the idea that community colleges are the American Dream, and shares content to help students achieve that dream through hard work, networking, and an understanding of the high return on investment a community college education can bring when done right.

“Even though the playing field isn’t fair, it doesn’t mean you can’t win.” – Adney on educational equity and the role community college plays in helping low-income and minority students rise above.

Isa received her Masters of Education from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. 

As one of the GOOD 100, Isa Adney is profiled in GOOD Magazine’s Spring 2013 issue.  For more information on the GOOD 100, visit http://www.good.is/good-100 or contact Diana Ahrens at diana@goodinc.com.
