More than 100 business and community leaders flooded the campus running industry-specific keynotes, hosting leadership round table discussions, providing hands-on demonstrations, and volunteering. This year’s conference specifically provided students an opportunity to learn in high-demand industries including healthcare, engineering, manufacturing, information technology, arts/design, and business.

Students were welcomed by communications expert, Steve Shenbaum, president of game on Nation, a nationally recognized communications firm. Shenbaum focused the opening keynote on the power of connection and the importance of being present in the moment.
