Gulfport, MS Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-04) today hosted his Seventh Annual Youth Leadership Summit for high school juniors and seniors on the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Jefferson Davis Campus. Nearly 400 students from 39 different schools within Mississippi’s Fourth Congressional District participated in the event.  

“These students will soon enter unfamiliar territory. I believe it is our duty to ensure the upcoming generation of leaders is equipped with skills that will help them be successful and achieve their goals. Right now, they have the options to pursue whatever path they choose whether that is a college education, military career, or start their own business. I hope every student left this event today feeling more motivated and empowered than when they first walked into the Youth Leadership Summit this morning."  

Throughout the day students had the opportunity to hear from the Director of the Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center, Dr. Kelly Lucas, Miss Mississippi 2018, Asya Branch, and Owner of Frigo Orthodontics, Dr. Chrstopher Frigo.
