We were delighted to welcome K.M. Walton to the York County Libraries’ Youth Empowerment Summit on Wednesday March 27th, 2019, a day designed to engage teens in a variety of activities to stimulate their interest in post-secondary education, personal learning interests and educational opportunities. K.M. gave the Keynote address and led a writers’ workshop. The theme for the Summit was ‘Save the World’ and I was impressed by the way K.M. wove the theme into her talk about the power of kindness to change the world. She shared both simple, humorous and challenging tips for the students to take away. When I looked around and saw the rapt attention on everyone’s faces, I knew that K.M. had succeeded in winning over this audience of teens!
