Teen Summit was Saturday, April 6, at the Missouri Innovation Campus. Students, staff and community members were exposed to vendors such as ProDeo and ReDiscover and gleaned information about job applications and college admissions. The conference-style event had sessions for teens around social media, teen suicide, interview preparation, diversity and inclusion, vaping, teen dating and other hot topics for students. The event concluded with a student-led panel in which students talked about current issues relating to their school experience.

The keynote speaker was Keith L. Brown:

Mr. Brown, (this is from his website – www.keithlbrown.com) “Mr. I’M POSSIBLE,”was identified as a “Special Ed”and “At Risk” student, primarily because he was very talkative, hyper, and wanted to give “all the answers;” ironically, these are a few of the same traits that made him a hit on the legendary “Showtime at the Apollo,” and Popular Game Shows, “Family Feud,” and “Celebrity Name Game,” and made him one of the most sought after Professional Speakers, Consultants, Change Agents and Award Winning Authors on the planet.”

“Named a “World Class Speaker”and one of the top speakers and consultants in Education by “Insight Publishing,”and “International Speakers Network,” Keith empowers hundreds of thousands of people annually, many of whom are in Colleges, School systems, Supplemental education agencies, Family advocacy agencies, Foundations, Government agencies, Faith Based Institutions, Corporate America and the “I’M POSSIBLE Institute,” where he coaches and trains Speakers, Authors, Entrepreneurs and all those seeking to expand their Impact and Influence Nationally and Globally. He has served as a “Client Referral Consultant,” on A&E’s hit television series,”Beyond Scared Straight,” and is a frequent guest on I-Heart and Sirius XM Radio, often serving as an expert on Youth and Family Enhancement, Educational and Social Justice and Improving the Quality of Life for all Human beings, especially the underserved.”
