SCA Student Attends Creighton University Symposium



(Lee’s Summit, MO) – Summit Christian Academy High School Junior Perry Worden recently attended the Creighton University Symposium that was hosted by Creighton’s Heider College of Business. The symposium is the nation’s largest student-run business conference. Approximately 60 high school students were in attendance. Five, including Worden, were from the Kansas City area.


“Tom Copeman, Vice Admiral of the U.S. Navy and Director of Global Government Relations at Raytheon Missile Systems; and Tom Weir, Vice President of American Airlines, both spoke at the conference,” shared Perry. “They both spoke about how they became successful and how ethics are important in becoming successful. They were a highlight of the conference.”


The conference agenda also included a networking luncheon and break out sessions on business etiquette, leadership and the importance of ethics.


“We also had time where we received our own customized business cards,” Perry shared. “We all had the opportunity to share contact information and create foundations for business relationships in the future. It was really exciting to be part of this event and hear from students from across the nation that interested in pursuing a career in the business world.”
