Today high school juniors and seniors from all across South Mississippi spent the day fine tuning their leadership skills.
Congressman Steven Palazzo hosted his eighth annual ‘Youth Leadership Summit’ at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Jefferson Davis campus.
Over 420 students from 39 different schools in Mississippi’s fourth congressional district attended the event.
Students listened to motivational speeches and had the opportunity to participate in a professional development session. Congressman Palazzo said, “My whole goal is if they can take away one life lesson, something that may help in the development in their character, that will help them meet adversity or a crisis head on and overcome it and be successful, then it was a big win for us today.”
Students who attended this event were selected by their school officials.
