Attached is the schedule for the AWSL student conference in Yakima this weekend, hosted by Eisenhower and Davis High Schools.
The conference, especially the General Sessions, is open to the media (please have your credentials and check in at the registration table).

Two points of interest:
1) We have invited Elizabeth McCormick to address the audience....her bio below:

Our speaker is currently #5 on the list of
Leadership experts to follow on Twitter, she is
the host of a new TV show about Veterans
which starts filming this Winter and is a best
selling author with more than 16 published
books. In 2011, Elizabeth was awarded the
Congressional Veteran Commendation.
As a decorated Black Hawk Pilot- one of the first
100 women- she flew command and control, air
assault, rappelling, and top-secret intelligence
missions, and also transported high-level
government VIPs including the Secretary of
Defense.

2) Students have collected thousands of items to support their chosen organization for the Conference: Teytum's Gifts http://www.teytumsgifts.com/ We invite you to come and see the loads and loads of items that have been collected to support children entering foster care.
