Leadership Conference preps area students for a purpose-driven life

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - “Overcoming obstacles” and “making the most of education” was the message for the annual Student and Parent Leadership Conference at the Century Center Saturday.

Students had an opportunity to talk with mentors about setting goals for their future in both education and in life.

"It's important to come here because you learn a lot of different things and they pretty much help you to get through life. They set for goals for you and tell you what you should and should not do,” says participant Sabree Freeman.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg was even on hand to say a few words. Students came from all over the area for today's conference, even as far as Gary.
