2019 Keynote Speaker

Professor Myron Scholes is widely known for his seminal work in options pricing, capital market equilibrium, tax policies and the financial services industry. He is widely published in academic journals. He is co-originator of the Black-Scholes options pricing model, which is the basis of the pricing and risk-management technology that is used to value and to manage the risk of options contained in instruments around the world. For his work on “a new theory to value derivatives…”, he (along with Robert Merton) was awarded the Alfred Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1997.

Achieve Now is dedicated to transforming the educational system in Philadelphia to one that produces students who can read. We will do this by incorporating evidence-based literacy instruction into Philadelphia schools, resulting in dramatic improvements in grade level reading. Once we have significantly improved literacy rates in Philadelphia, we will take our proven methods to other communities to increase literacy rates for even more American schoolchildren.
