Three Football Seniors Speak at Able Trust Youth Leadership Forum
Aug. 3, 2004
On Friday July 23rd three football players attended the Able Trust Youth Leadership Forum. This program trains high school juniors and seniors with disabilities to become competitive leaders. The Forum is held every year in Tallahassee in which fifty students are chosen for their leadership abilities. The goal of this program is to develop a network of young adults with disabilities who realize their ability to pursue meaningful employment and societal contributions, while helping break down the barriers to independence for them as well.
Seniors Chris Rix, Kyler Hall and Ray Piquion attended the Youth Forum to talk about the importance of leadership and their roles as leaders on their team. They also took pictures, signed autographs, and interacted with many of the children.
