“On behalf of the entire Board and staff, we are excited to bring together this incredible panel,” remarked YMI Executive Director Brittany Rayburn. “Each of these individuals have been guided and impacted by mentors along their journeys of accomplishment and now have a desire to give back. We’re looking forward to an inspiring morning with them and Mayor Fadness.”
