HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg chapter of a national sorority hosted an event Saturday which offered local teens some valuable tips on leading happier and more productive lives.
The Beta Chi Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority participated in a 17th annual Youth Symposium.
It was held at the Sherrill Community Center and focused on children ages 13-17.
Speakers dealt with topics such as etiquette and making healthy choices. Other chapters nationwide also participated in the event.
"We try to make sure that we focus on a project that focuses on our youth, because our youth are our future," said Margo Green, president of the Beta Chi Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. "Without them, without mentoring to them and talking to them, we don't have a future," she said.
The symposium was called, Partners for Progress, Working Together to Build Bridges for Youth.
