Jason Thomas talked about the importance of proper dress for an interview and taught the boys how to correctly tie a necktie. Rachel Everett discussed the importance of self-esteem and attendees completed an activity called “Why I Love Me.”

Jackie Patterson discussed the importance of getting 60 minutes — 15 minutes here and there — of exercise throughout each day. Alice Smith talked about healthy food groups and completed a worksheet with them.
