More than 200 high-schoolers recently attended the Youth Leadership Summit organized by Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL).
The fifth annual event, which was held at Illinois Valley Community College in Oglesby, attracted more than 200 high school juniors and seniors from 25 schools in Kinzinger’s district.
The daylong summit, which featured workshops, lessons in leadership and guest speakers, was held on Oct. 20. Attendees were selected by their teachers.
“Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Youth Leadership Summit and to all those who helped make it such a success,” Kinzinger said in a press release. “Special thank you to our incredible guest speakers for taking the time to be with us.”
Guest speakers at the summit included Jerry Reinsdorf, the owner of the Chicago Bulls and Chicago White Sox. Illinois Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti also spoke at the event.
“Each year, I learn something new and I’m encouraged by the bright students we have in our 16th Congressional District,” Kinzinger said.
