Preface Announces Creation of International Advisory Board in Response to Global Interest


The newly formed international committee will provide global perspectives and direct regional leadership to further enhance the Preface model.

GWINNETT COUNTY, GA. – In response to a surge of international interest, Preface has officially incorporated an International Advisory Board (“IAB”) into its organizational structure, adding yet another layer of expertise to its innovative approach to multilingual literacy education. Bringing together diverse perspectives from a cross-section of nationalities and professional backgrounds, the IAB will serve as an integral conduit between Preface leadership and multinational stakeholders interested in adapting the Preface model to serve their own communities.

“We’re deeply humbled by the outpouring of support Preface continues to receive from all corners of the globe, and we’re excited to build on that momentum by welcoming these accomplished voices onto the Preface team,” said Jonathan “JT” Wu, Founder & Executive Director of Preface. “In Gwinnett County alone, the diversity of students that our Ambassadors work with every single day is breathtaking. In our increasingly interconnected world, there’s no question that the insights, analyses, and global perspectives provided by our IAB will only enhance the effectiveness of the Preface model – both at home and abroad.”

Wu added that Preface looks forward to uniting cutting-edge domestic and international best practices to continue empowering the next generation – in both Gwinnett County and beyond. Bolstered by ongoing momentum, positive preliminary results, and sustained community support, Preface appears poised to lend its distinctive voice to the educational conversation for years to come.
