Youth Workshop Teaches Students About Success

By  | 

High school kids from around our area received a lesson in success today during an Inaugural Young Emerging Leaders Workshop.

West Innovations LLC, a company that aims to encourage youth to pursue college degrees, hosted the conference at the Hilton Garden Inn this morning. The class teaches the importance of performance, image and exposure - tools that are referred to collectively as PIE.

"Although PIE is a professional career tool, it's very important for kids to prepare now, so that they are prepared and ready for the opportunities that await them," speaker Terrence Carter says.

West Innovations wants to inspire kids to have a bright future. Carter says although organizers had hoped for a larger turnout, the speakers plan to return for more events like this in the future.
