That’s a wrap for the 2018 National School Boards Association’s annual conference. The more than 6,000 school board members, superintendents, and other educational leaders who gathered in San Antonio had important conversations on the major issues facing K-12 schools.

This year’s theme: Be extraordinary.

The event started with a rousing keynote from football legend and NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw, in which the former Super Bowl winning quarterback challenged school leaders to be “purposeful” and “loving” in their work.

A Louisiana native from a working-class family, Bradshaw credits a strong work ethic with helping him become one of the most recognizable sports figures, actors and television personalities of his generation.

For the women and men in attendance at NSBA, Bradshaw’s story served as the perfect backdrop for the three-day celebration and conference, which focused on inspiring everyday schoolchildren to achieve extraordinary feats, and providing them with the guidance and support they need to succeed.

Attendees shared their stories of inspiration on Twitter, using the hashtag #NSBAConf. Here’s some of our favorite highlights from the weekend.
