Cheers to helping shape our future generation!



HUGE thank you to the 80+ community members who gave their time to share stories, advice, and encourage our future generation of leaders.

Gosh...where to even begin


Friday was the first ever Rising Tides Student Connection Conference with Ankeny School District and, after reading the 300 student and community member feedback forms, I am stunned at the positive ripple effect that has come out of the day.


HUGE thank you to the 80+ community members who gave their time to share stories, advice, and encourage our future generation of leaders.


A few of my favorite comments include…


Students:

- I really liked getting advice from many different people in different places and jobs

- My key takeaways from today are that you can always change what you want to do in your career

- My key takeaway from today is to be yourself and do what your heart wants

- I realized that I don’t need to know exactly what to do yet.


Community Members:

- I really liked reminding students that mistakes are okay and perfection isn’t everything

- I really liked meeting the kids with different interests and learning about their experiences and then talking

about how those could translate after school

- My key takeaways from today are that these students are leaps and bounds more ready for the “real world” than I was at their age

- There are a lot of young people who are going to do incredible things!
