Highlighted speakers included Donald Dennis, Community Developer Manager at Huntington Bank, who spoke about his life experience and shared with students a powerful message on “It’s not where you start, but where you end up.” We also featured Master Curator and Owner of Posh Teatime, Ella Williams, who discussed her entrepreneurial journey while providing a fun, unique teatime experience for students to learn about etiquette.
