To be announced at Randy Wren funeral.

Today I will announce the dedication of Wren College, something he has been in the process of forming for over 20 years. It will now be dedicated to the memory of my brother Randy Wren.

Randy died from a sudden heart attack July 10 in the lobby of his apartment building. His full obituary may be seen on the website of the Villager Newspaper or via one of the links on www.Facebook.com/RememberingRandyWren  

At the reception after his funeral at Denver’s St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church today I will make this  announcement. For the last 20 years I’ve dedicated my life to the strengthening of the grassroots in business and politics with the support and encouragement of Randy. Wren College was a project of mine he loved. Randy and our after-Easter Jesus will be my companions in it’s over-due launch.

I will enlist the help and support of each and everyone of the 35 Colorado State Senators in this effort. The first step will be a tour of the state to speak to the grassroots in each of the 35 Senatorial districts, and I hope each of the Senators will join me. Any who are not against Wren College and preserving the memory of Randy will be considered to be with us  More will be announced next week. If you'd be willing to help please fill out the application above, then call me (720)495-4949.

For anyone reading this who doesn't know me, I'm the founder and President of your Small Business Chamber of Commerce, Inc. We work to cooperate with local community newspapers to strengthen the grassroots in business and politics. We have formed and facilitated free, independent self-directed learning groups since the Friday after 9/11, and we have now formed Wren College with the intention of helping other towns and cities to do the same. For more contact me through  www.SmallBizChamber.org or (720)495-4949.

Self-directed Learning?

Wikipedia auto-directs the "Self-directed Learning" searches to "Autodidact," which is a big, big mistake, of course. Seems to be a political decision.

What comes closest to the meaning of "Self-directed Learning" on Wikipedia right now is "Social Learning."  We talk about this and how to become a teacher for Wren College each Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. at Panera Bread LoDo, 16th & Market. Join us this afternoon (Fri, 6/2) or next Friday?

More info about the meeting on https://Meetup.com/Small-Biz-Chamber

We are a project of the Small Business Chamber of Commerce, Inc., 1881 Buchtel Blvd. #501, Denver, CO 80210. The SBCC is an educational rather than political organization. We do not take positions on issues or candidates, bwe encourage students and teachers to check out all sides and then make up their own minds. Our purpose is to inform, not reform.
