Se­niors at­tend Youth Lead­er­ship Sum­mit at MNHS

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - COMMUNITY -

Devon Prep Se­nior Daniel O’Con­nor of Broomall and Ju­nior Bran­don Hoang of Spring­field re­cently were se­lected to at­tend the 7th Con­gres­sional Dis­trict’s Third An­nual Youth Lead­er­ship Sum­mit at Marple New­town High School. Nearly 700 stu­dents from 38 high schools in the 7th Dis­trict at­tended this year’s Sum­mit, which was hosted by Con­gress­man Patrick Mee­han.

The Sum­mit was an op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to hear from suc­cess­ful lead­ers with unique sto­ries and in­sights to share. The keynote speaker, Liz Scott, mother of Alex Scott of Alex’s Lemon­ade Stand, spoke to the stu­dents about per­sis­tence in over­com­ing ad­ver­sity. The other speak­ers in­cluded: Lo­gan Co­hen, founder of Kud­zoo, Inc. and a Forbes “30 Un­der 30” win­ner; Carl An­tisell from Mind­ing Your Mind, which helps young peo­ple over­come ad­dic­tion and de­pres­sion; and Chris­tian Za­jac, an As­sis­tant Spe­cial Agent in Charge with the FBI in Philadel­phia.

Ac­cord­ing to both O’Con­nor and Hoang at­tend­ing the Sum­mit was a worth­while ex­pe­ri­ence. “Con­gress­man Mee­han in­vited mul­ti­ple speak­ers to dis­cuss what it means to be a leader,” Said Hoang. “Lo­gan Co­hen, the co­founder of Kud­zoo, de­liv­ered a great speech. From this event, I learned what it takes to be an even bet­ter leader. “

O’Con­nor serves as Devon Prep’s Stu­dent Coun­cil pres­i­dent and Hoang serves as vice pres­i­dent of the school’s Chris­tian Ac­tion Pro­gram.
