On Thursday, October 25, several students attended the Palazzo Youth Leadership Summit at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Jefferson Davis Campus. Students in attendance were Connor Atwell, Emma Bruffey, Lauren Dossett, Tyler Gerretse, Avery King, Jesse Kearns, Nick McNew, Jacob Roberts, Makenzie Stenum and Clayton Stoddard.

The Palazzo Youth Leadership Summit gives high school juniors and seniors from schools across Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District the opportunity to hear the success stories of our prestigious guest speakers. 

The Summit included presentations from notable speakers and a college fair.

The most interesting topic discussed to me was all of the speakers stories of how they rose to where they are today. They gave us a lot of tips of how to cope with our stress and daily lives in a healthy way, which was very helpful. My favorite speaker was Dr. Christopher Frigo because of how relatable his story was for me, and how he made the best of the situation he was in. – SPCHS Junior Emma Bruffey
