The Teen Summit, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon, is an annual event for high school students in the South Central Kentucky region that promotes leadership skills as well as college and career readiness. This event serves more than 900 students from Allen, Barren, Logan and Warren counties each year.

Dr. Carter will focus on the ways in which high school students can use their strengths (e.g. strong talents and abilities) to best prepare for college and careers. She is responsible for a number of retention initiatives and programs at WKU that include academic advising and first year experience programming. Her goal for this program will be to empower students to begin thinking proactively about their college and lifelong careers while learning more about the myriad programs that WKU has to offer.

The Teen Summit encourages students to stay motivated in their high school careers, helping them understand how hard work and determination now will pay off for their futures. Featured speakers, as well as panel members, highlight key college and career readiness information for the students, and share information with them that they can use now to help them better prepare for life after high school.
