Empowerment Academy Chair David Boswell will present welcoming remarks before introducing featured speakers Selena Coalter and United States Senator Rand Paul.

The purpose of the event is to increase awareness about teens in our community who are homeless, couch-hopping and/or otherwise living in challenging situations and in need of long-term housing, life skills training and educational encouragement and to raise funds for renovation of Saint Angela Hall on the Ursuline campus at Maple Mount.

“The Empowerment Academy Board is dedicated to securing resources to support our local teens in need of safe, long-term housing and we are truly thankful that Ms. Coalter and Senator Paul are taking time out of their busy Thanksgiving Holiday schedules to help us share the mission of the Empowerment Academy,” said David Boswell, Chair of the Empowerment Academy Board of Directors. “Education is the great equalizer. When we provide for the basic needs of our community’s struggling young people so they may concentrate on their educations, we will make a difference in their lives and improve the quality of life for the entire community.”
