HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Representative Steven Palazzo never dreamed as a high school student that he could one day become a state representative. It's the steps he took through leadership and hard work that paved his path, and that's the message behind his first "Palazzo Youth Leadership Summit." 

Over three hundred and fifty students converged on the USM campus Tuesday for Rep. Palazzo's conference; the purpose being that the summit help nurture and grow the leadership qualities of high school students. 

Students were selected for the summit based on their academic excellence, extracurricular activities, and commitment to community service.
