Metro Community College hosts conference for African-American youth

Omaha, NE – Metro Community College is hosting 150 African American high school males this Saturday at its Men of Distinction Conference.

Fred Conley coordinated the event and says the 11th and 12th graders will learn about setting goals, male responsibility, personal relationships and how to finance a college education. Conley says it's important for young people to have a vision of what they want to accomplish in their lives. He hopes to grow the Men of Distinction Conference into a bigger event next year.

The keynote speaker for the conference is George C. Fraser, Chairman and CEO of FraserNet Inc. The conference takes place at the Fort Omaha Campus.
