River Valley Students attend Indiana County Chamber of Commerce Luncheon

Though a generous yet anonymous benefactor, the RVSD was invited to have its students attend the 109th Annual Indiana County Chamber of Commerce Luncheon. Students were one of the primary focal points of the luncheon. They heard an impassioned keynote message from Mr. Jason Stoughton from North Georgia. Jason is the Director of Leadership Advancement at the John Maxwell Company. His message resonated with three key segments: getting to know other people’s backstories, genuine kindness, and that all mistakes are not permanent unless we do not learn from them. All three portions really meant something to the students.

At the end of the day, the students collectively expressed how Friday's, December 3, Luncheon was a life-altering day. Without the experience, they all echoed how they would not have had any idea of how their career pathway's next steps were going to be positively impacted and enhanced. The group was extremely appreciative of the experience and wanted to thank everyone concerned for being invited to such a pivot event.
