The commissioners shared updates regarding each of the workshops. They were overall excited about the day and the engagement between youth and company representatives. All of the guest speakers did a great job, and the commissioners saw a lot of potential. It was unfortunate that many students were unable to attend due to it being the first day of summer school and programming, and the Youth Commissioners will try to accommodate youth better next time.
