Students are encouraged to submit questions to the panel members. The feature presentation titled "The Influence of Character" will be presented by former Dallas Cowboy defensive back, Everson Walls. Find out more about the panel members here.
3. Free T-shirts
That's right! Be one of the first 50 people to come to the Keynote Presentation at 10:30 a.m. in Martin Hall and you'll receive a ticket for a free T-shirt. Are you presenting? You automatically get a t-shirt ticket. T-shirts can be picked up at Ram Jam.
4. Free Food
