On March 14th, a selected group of seventh and eighth grade students attended the Genesee County Youth Conference at Genesee Community College.
Mr. Shrout and Mr. Archer accompanied the students on what has become and annual event over the past five years.
The conference is offered on an annual basis to local seventh and eighth grade students in an effort to address many areas of interest to students of middle-school age.
This year's theme was "Make Your Own Luck". The keynote speaker was Big Rob The Motivator. Rob's game is to motivate students to reach their full potential. He gives students the extra boost of inspiration and motivation to acquire and achieve the "impossible." Big Rob challenges students to claim who they are regardless of their circumstances.
After the keynote students attended two morning workshops, were provided lunch, and attended an interactive afternoon workshop.
Workshops were offered in the areas of: Yoga, Internet Safety, Careers, Zumba, Building a Better Self, Restorative Justice, Money Game$, Therapeutic Benefit of Animals, Building Blocks To Your Future, and many others. Studnets could choose their workshops.
The students had a great time and wish to thank all of the educators, staff, and volunteers that made this such a great experience.
Attendees were: Nicholas Andrews, Katelyn Beach, Tyler Brett, Caroline DeLaura, Grace Elschker, Terry Green, Miranda Howell, Jabari Johnson, Maleah Knight, Jasmine Kremer, Allison Mathes, Lillian Mathes, Sarah Mathes, Kylee Otero, Jordan Postle, Nia Rodriguez, Belen Rosario Soto, Lliam Rowella, Alejandro Samsel, and Charlotte Symons.
