Schock to host 'leadership summit' for high schoolers

U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Peoria, is hosting a four-hour “leadership summit” for high school juniors and seniors Friday in Springfield, with speakers to include the founder of the Jimmy John’s sandwich franchise and Katie Stam, who was the 2009 Miss America.

“This will be a unique opportunity for high school students to learn from some exceptional speakers who will share their life stories – from businessmen to beauty queens,” Schock said in a news release.

The program will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Sangamon Auditorium at the University of Illinois Springfield.

Dave Natonski, spokesman for Schock, said schools across the 18th Congressional District have been notified, and several hundred students are expected to participate in the free summit.

The summit was featured in a April 28, 2010, article in the State Journal-Register.
