Michael Walton is more than just an athlete; he is a pioneer making a difference in the Washington DC area communities. On Saturday April 4, 2009 Michael will present his first annual MW Foundation Teen Summit to address issues and concerns that affect our youth and teens today. Inspired by the once popular TV Show on BET "Teen Summit" a few of the show's hosts/posse members will join Michael and share their voice to inspire and encourage. The Teen Summit will honor the efforts of Prince Georges County City Council Chair Marilynn Bland.
Why does Michael continue to tirelessly add his voice and give his time? "When Michael Walton spoke to us it left me speechless. He told us a story about a crossroads in his life in which is mother gave him inspiration that led to him accomplishing great things for years to come. That day when I went home I applied myself more than ever. I picked up a book, started reading and studying. I learned so much from the assembly. If you have a dream go for it and don't let anyone rob you of that dream," said a 10th Grade Student of Dr. Henry Wise High School in Prince George's County, Maryland. Please join Michael Walton and the other panel members for an amazing day of encouragement, inspiration and change. One by one we can make a difference, but together we can create change. In addition to the Teen Summit, The Michael Walton Foundation has 3 days filled with wonderful opportunities to involve and benefit the youth of Washington, DC and PG County Maryland. Below is the list of events.
