Gwinnett middle schoolers to attend leadership symposium

May 2, 2019

     More than 200 Summerour Middle School students and more than four dozen additional students in Gwinnett County Public Schools’ Community-Based Mentoring Program will attend the Power of WE Symposium on Friday, May 10. The Power of WE Symposium features compelling business leaders and motivational speakers from around the world relaying their stories of how they overcame adversity to achieve their goals to hundreds of Atlanta area middle and high school students. The symposium will be held at the Biltmore Ballrooms/Georgian Ballroom in downtown Atlanta.

     The event seeks to uplift, motivate, encourage, and celebrate youth leaders through adult allies who plan to speak purpose into the young adult’s journey. These student leaders will be treated to a full red carpet entry to start their day filled with life changing presentations, Q & A segments, photo opportunities, live musical entertainment, swag bags, and much more. The goal is to create an event that will forever remind each student that they can achieve anything just like the featured presenters. Confirmed participants include:
