Last night at East High School in Memphis TN, Grammy Award winning artist Ciara, K. Michelle, our very own Quddus, and DJ Devin Steele from K97 hosted a Youth Summit and SURPRISED 900 high school students.
The event was the latest stop on the Get Schooled National Challenge and Tour – a multi-city tour to engage students in an effort to help improve high school graduation rates and ultimately raise college completion rates. The Youth Summit engaged students in a conversation about what their biggest challenges are in school. The celebrity education ambassadors asked the students to identify personal educational goals and to commit to achieving them.
