It was great to meet today with some of our future leaders as a group of six students joined me in the Mayor's office to learn a little bit more about the City and about what I do. The youth were accompanied by Sara Knueve from Glendale Elementary and the Reverend Lloyd Biddle, Senior Associate Pastor with High Point Church.
We were also joined by City of Madison Human Resources Director Harper Donahue and Deputy Mayor Enis Ragland. Project SOAR is overseen by 100 Black Men of Madison to help young men develop positive self-esteem, identify career goals, develop skills to influence others and to build and manage a support network. I hope to meet with these young men again as they continue to be role models and leaders!
