2016 Youth College Exposure Tour
Organized by: Ronnie Elliott
EVENT DATE Oct 14, 2016
My name is Coach Ronnie. I am originally from Huntsville, Al. I attended Duke University on a full athletic scholarship to play football. Through hard work and the help of my coaches, teammates, professors and tutors I graduated with a B.A in Cultural Anthropology. I believe in each and everyone of our youth. I believe that they can accomplish monumental things when given the opportunity. Last year I decided I would begin a college tour for students and student athletes that would give them the opportunity to experience College life. I believe that if our kids truly new the opportunities that were available to them and had guidance on how to achieve those opportunities, they would make better decisions. The Youth College Exposure Tour is designed to expand the minds of our youth. Giving them exposure to some of the top Universities in the nation. Before our trip - each athlete is required to write out at least 10 things they are considering as a profession. We take that list and provide them with research, data and a liaison from the school that gives them information on the requirements, benefits, challenges and advantages of their chosen field of study. Trip includes visits to the following universities: 1. Tennessee State Univerity 2. Vanderbilt University 3. Univerity of Kentucky 4. Univerity of Tennessee 5. Univerity of Tennessee Chatanooga. Please help us in our efforts to expand the minds of our young people and give them a foundation to believe in themselves and their dreams.
