COLUMBUS, Ga.- One Empower One Inc. hosted a “Masters in the Making” conference for young men at the Frank Chester Recreation Center. Dozens of young men packed the gym to listen to a panel of Columbus professionals give advice and insight on life.
Stefan Lawrence, the Muscogee County School District’s 2016 Teacher of the Year, urged older guys to set an example for the younger guys. Emcee Gabe “Mrfliguy” Hicks says it’s time for millennials to become role models in the community.
After the panel, students were able to ask questions in an open forum setting.
All the young men who participated in the event were given school supplies to prepare for classes, which start in the next couple weeks.
One Empower One Inc. says they plan on having another conference in the near future to show young men how to dress appropriately for different occasions.
