From our friends at the Aliquippa Council of Men and Fathers: A Student Athlete Symposium

Dear Community Stakeholder:
On behalf of the Aliquippa Council of Men and Fathers, an initiative of the Franklin Center of Beaver County, we invite you to join us for “How to Succeed in Professional Athletics and Other Alternative Paths to Success,” a symposium on the student-athlete. This free event will take place on May 17, 2014 from 8am-4pm at the Aliquippa Jr/Sr High Black Box Theatre.

As someone who is actively engaged in the lives of our student-athletes, we believe that you possess valuable insights into the questions and issues that they confront now, and may encounter after graduation from high school. These questions and issues include the following: How important is it to obtain the academic skills necessary for post-secondary success and beyond? Is athletic success valued over academic achievement in our homes and schools? The importance of exposing our kids to opportunities in the marketplace such as: law enforcement, public transportation, military careers; local, state and federal government etc.

Former athletes, career specialists and professionals will present alternative/additional career choices and advice on how to navigate the peaks, valleys and pitfalls of the student-athletes journey.

We need you! Come join us for a great, informative and fun day. If you need more information contact Shon Owens or Lispert Dowdell by phone or email. Phone: 724-378-2882 or email: or RSVP by Friday May 9, 2014.

See you at the Black Box!
