I Need A Speaker to Host Program for High School Students

Members News

Area high school students are invited to participate in the STAND TALL SPEAK OUT program, a one-day event that teaches executive presence and public presentation skills to prepare attendees for future opportunities related to employment and college. The event will take place on Saturday, March 2, from 10 am to 3 pm at Scranton Preparatory School, 1000 Wyoming Ave., Scranton.

“This program was created to help students build and maintain self-confidence as they approach the next stage of life,” explained Will Ramey, DBA, an Army veteran, entrepreneur and TEDx speaker who is one of two presenters. “Students will have two hours of instruction from me, supported by two hours of public presentation instruction from my colleague, Tricia Richards-Service, PhD.”

Planners are seeking financial contributions for this program. Although sponsorship packages are available at $2,500, $1,000, and $500, contributions in any amount would be appreciated to offset costs. Additional information and registration forms are being distributed to area high school guidance counselors and administrators. Student registration is $20 for the event. Ten students will be awarded scholarships. Registration fees include programming and a boxed lunch.

“This event is limited to the first 200 students to register,” said Richards-Service. “We encourage people to register early.”

The registration deadline is February 15, 2024. To obtain additional information or secure your spot, e-mail info@ineedaspeaker.com or call 570-955-6965.
