Oliver DeMille overcame learning disabilities as a child–he did not read fluently until he was almost 11 years old–to become an avid learner and successful student. He garnered awards, recognition and scholarships in everything from athletics, fine arts and science to foreign language, writing, and forensics, and graduated from his high school as the salutatorian. He continued on to successful higher learning, both in colleges and through formal mentoring. His challenges and successes in schooling helped him galvanize his thoughts on education, and his search for a model that would produce leaders and learners who lived up to their potential led him to discover and articulate the principles of Leadership Education, or “TJEd”.
