Lunch and gifts will be provided. Student Involvement also will give away a semester’s worth of textbooks to one student who attends.

Keynote motivational speaker Justin Jones-Fosu uses personal examples to encourage leaders to make an impact on others.

“We want to express to our students that it isn’t about ‘talking the talk;’ you have to be conscious of your actions to really make an impact on others,” said Tamara Crooks, Student Involvement leadership coordinator.
