The Ripon College Communication Department will host its sixth annual Youth Summit, a conference-style event designed for high school students, Wednesday, March 24

This year’s theme is “Ethics, Communication and Conservation,” and focuses on environmental issues, specifically themes culled from Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.” After viewing portions of the documentary and hearing from guest speakers, students will join senior communication majors for interactive small group discussions.

The Ripon Forum on Ethics and Oratory Youth Summit is a unique and interactive learning experience for tomorrow’s leaders. Participating high school students will develop a deeper understanding of the role of ethics and oratory in leadership.

To read the entire story, see the March 11 edition of the Ripon Commonwealth Press.
