SEED20 kicked off the coaching sessions with a successful workshop. Cathy Anderson, formerly of Queens University, and Partner Reginald White, of Toran Enterprises, provided guidance on how to give a compelling pitch. Dee Lanier, of UNCOMMEN, gave an opening pep talk to the twenty to open the second session before practice and coaching began. The SEED20 volunteer coaches and student ambassadors from Davidson are actively supporting these nonprofit participants who are ready to share their three-minute speech that tells who they are and why they matter to our community.
Lead Partner for this year’s SEED20 class, Jennifer Davis-Martin, is excited about the progress of the coaching sessions, “This year’s SEED20 class has already shown they are leaders who are going to make a difference. They are getting ready to take the stage to raise awareness with our engaged audience about the social challenges they are addressing”. SEED20 is moving at a fast pace toward April 11th. With a few coaching sessions under their belt, the participants are working toward perfecting their pitch for the big night!
We hope you have the evening of Monday, April 11th marked on your calendar for the final event at the Knight Theater. See you there!
