(Las Vegas, NV) — In recognition of Black History Month, Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly put together his Twelfth Annual African American Youth Leadership Summit on Friday.
Approximately 200 high school students from County Commission District D attended the conference. The conference featured workshops on a variety of topics including money management and banking, leadership and social responsibility and health and goal setting.
“This program gives some of our leaders of tomorrow a chance to learn about important life skills and encourages them to be active in their community,” Commissioner Weekly said. “I truly appreciate our community partners and the school district for their assistance with this great program.”
The commissioner invited students from Rancho, Western, Canyon Springs, Cheyenne, Mojave and Desert Pines high schools, and the West Preparatory, Andre Agassi Preparatory and Advanced Technologies academies to the conference. The participating students were selected by their school principals.
