2019 Young Men's Leadership Conference
The "Young Men's Leadership Conference held at Valencia College, on August 1st, was a great
event for all who attended. The day began with a continental breakfast, followed by a speed
mentoring session with successful men from our community. Each professional met with students to
talk about careers, leadership skills, and answer questions.
We were also fortunate to have as our Keynote Speaker, Jon Gordon. Jon is the author of 18 books including 6 bestsellers. His inspirational talks have motivated audiences around the world. Jon's passion about developing positive leaders was quite evident as he took the time out of his busy schedule to be with us on this day and answer questions from students. All attendees received Jon's book, Training Camp, along with a positive plan for achieving success, and a certificate of participation.
In addition to attendees meeting new friends, being mentored and trained by the best, one lucky student, Isaac Batista,
a sophomore from Gateway High School, won the $1,000 scholarship. A special thanks to the Foundation of Education,
Osceola for providing the funding for the event and the $1000 scholarship.
Success is intentional! No one gets there alone. Having said this, I want to take this opportunity to thank
all who helped make this event a success. It was indeed a team effort!
