Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Over 1,000 high school students from across Sumner County will converge at Wellington High School for the “Sumner County Youth Summit” on Tuesday, Jan. 21.The event will feature two speakers: Bill Cordes, a motivational speaker; and Miss Kansas Theresa Vail, who will be speaking to high school students from Wellington, Oxford, Caldwell, Belle Plaine, South Haven and Argonia from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The program is open to the public.The Summit is organized by Karla Defore’s Leadership Classes and partnered with the Sumner County Community Drug Action Team. There will also be leadership seminars and luncheons in which schools will be broken down into small groups for team building and ice-breaking activities. The project has been a work in progress since September and started after several WHS girls took a trip to Central Burden High School to hear another motivational speaker Alexis Jones. The seminar spoke about “empowering girls.”“The girls came back all excited,” Defore said. “We started discussing about it in class and we were wondering if we could do something similar here but also include the boys. After all the seminar in Central was only including half the population.”The Summit will touch on theme about the importance of empowerment and self esteem especially with females. The two genders will be separated. Cordes will speak in the high school gymnasium to just boys. Vail will then speak to the females in the high school auditorium. After the morning session then the two groups will switch with Miss Kansas speaking to the boys and Cordes speaking to the girls.“The two genders obviously have different issues, and the Summit will work two-fold,” Defore said. “Ultimately, the goal is to knock down the stereotypes of ‘putting girls in their place.” But it will be viewed from both a boys and girls perspective.”Cordes has spent more than 20 years teaching teachers, teens, college students and business professionals better ways to live their lives. He is known as the YOGOWYPI guy which stands for “You Only Get Out What You Put In.”  Cordes has co-authored six books and has spoken to groups in 49 states. He has been a former high school teacher, college instructor, coach, television talk show host, husband and father of four.Vail received international fame when she became the first Miss America contestant to openly display tattoos during the swimsuit competition in the Miss America 2014 pageant. She placed in the top 10 and won the “America’s Choice” award. She is currently at Kansas State University and a mechanic and section leader in the Kansas Army National Guard Medical Detachment.Her platform at the pageant was “Empowering Women: Overcoming Stereotypes and Breaking Barriers.”Defore’s class has been working on the Summit since September 20 that included organizing the events throughout the day. They invited the whole student bodies of the six other schools to attend. Conway Springs was the only school to turn them down.There will be a pre-program before the other schools get there at 10 a.m. that will include Vail speaking about her various hobbies including her archery skills.last_img read more
