Lufkin community leaders mentoring students at Teen Summit


Saturday Lufkin community leaders banded together to teach teens about self esteem, careers and education at the 2013 Teen Summit.   

75 middle school and high school students participated in the 7th annual event.

The students were divided into groups for various sessions led by different community leaders.

Some of the topics the discussed include educational choices, job and career opportunities and dealing with self esteem issues.

"Children need guidance, they need to understand what life is going to offer them and the things we have to offer in life, they need to learn it because a lot of them aren't getting it so we're trying to give it to them in these sessions," said Victor Travis, Concerned Black Men Association.

Officials are planning to following with students throughout the year and make sure they are applying what they learned as they go through school and pursue different careers.
