Teens attending public or private high schools in Pima County were invited to attend the "Shift Your Thinking" Teen Leadership Summit on Feb. 1, 2019, at the University of Arizona Student Union Grand Ballroom. Hosted by Pima Association of Governments, this one-day conference offered emerging teen leaders the inside track on how leaders advance in their careers, why leadership is important in the success of our communities and region, and what it takes to be a future leader. Civic, business and education professionals were among the speakers. The event also included a career and resource fair, a student challenge, entertainment and lunch. Special thanks to our sponsors, career mentors and career resource fair exhibitors as well as to the following individuals who helped make the program a success:

  • Emcee: Dustin Williams, Superintendent of Pima County Schools
  • Guest speaker: Sahuarita Mayor Tom Murphy
  • Motivational speaker: Julia Garcia, Founder of Rewrite Project
  • Student challenge activity leaders: Melrose Pan, Raymond Huang and Dr. Yi-Chang Chiu of the University of Arizona College of Engineering, Civil and Architectural Engineering and Mechanics
