Oregon State University hosted the 11th Annual African American Youth Leadership Conference – and what a successful day it was! High school students from the Salem-Keizer School District were in attendance and heard from speakers, attended a variety of workshops and got to enjoy special entertainment during lunch from members of OSU’s African American Greek Life organizations. The theme of the conference was P.R.I.D.E.: Proud Responsible Individuals Dedicated to Excellence (Connect with Your Future: Dream, Focus, Plan, and Achieve Your Goals)
