Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) will host the first annual Youth Conference for the 2nd Congressional District on May 15th, 2010. The purpose of the event is to encourage high school students to prepare for their future.

Our countrys greatest resources are our children, said Poe. As a community, we are bettered by the contributions of our neighbors and there is no greater place to plant that seed than with our young people.

As I speak to students all across our district, I remind them the importance of being involved in their communities and the importance of making good decisions that will create opportunities for them in the future, continued Poe. This conference will aim to provide high school students with the encouragement, guidance and resources to start planning for tomorrow today.

The conference will include guest speakers and an opportunity for students to talk one-on-one with leaders in our communities. Joining Congressman Poe, guest speakers will include: former NBA basketball player Elvin Hayes, Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Landry (U.S. Army Retired), and former astronaut Richard Hieb.
