WEATHER, FINALLY. ENJOYING AND LOOKING TO SOME FALL WEATHER AHEAD. THE SECOND ANNUAL HIGH PUMPS THE HIGH HILLS CELEBRATING WOMEN’S AND SPORTS AND TOURISM TAKES PLACE OCTOBER 29. HERE TO GET US READY IS AMY KINZER. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TODAY. LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS SECOND ANNUAL. YOU HAD OVER 400 PEOPLE THERE LAST YEAR AND YOU ARE EXPECTING THAT MANY IF NOT MORE. DEFINITELY MORE. WE ARE ABOUT THREE WEEKS OUT AND WHAT IS AMAZING IS IT IS ALL ABOUT ENLIGHTENING AND ENCOURAGING AND EMPOWERING FEMALES. IT STARTS AT A YOUNG AGE AND WE HAVE NEVER ANTICIPATED THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS AND STUDENT ATHLETES THAT CAME LAST YEAR SO THIS YEAR WE ALREADY HAVE OVER 300 COMMITTED TO COME FROM ALL FIVE HIGH SCHOOL SO WE ARE VERY EXCITED. LAST YEAR , THE MAJORITY WERE THE YOUNG LADIES FROM THE SCHOOLS AND ITS HIGH SCHOOLS AND MIDDLE SCHOOLS AS WELL AND ONE OF THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS WROTE A GRANT AS WELL. THEY DID. HYLAND CONTACTED ME AND SAID IS IT OKAY TO BRING FIFTH-GRADERS AND I SAID MOST DEFINITELY SO SHE WROTE A GRANT AND THEY ARE COMING. THAT IS GREAT. YOU HAVE A FORMER OLYMPIAN COMING TO BE A PART OF THIS. YES, KATE ZIGLER WILL BE THE GUEST SPEAKER AND SHE IS A TWO- TIME OLYMPIC WINNER. AMAZING LADY JUST TO SIT DOWN AND TALK WITH. WE HAVE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE TIME THAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO STRUM WITH HER SO FAR AND I FEEL THAT SHE HAS A MESSAGE TO DELIVER ESPECIALLY TO THE ATHLETES AND NOT ONLY THE STUDENT ATHLETES BUT ANYONE THAT WANTS TO ATTEND IS MORE THAN WELCOME TO. IT WILL BE A BIG CROWD AND THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR YOU HAVE HAD THIS. SPORTS AND TOURISM ESPECIALLY IN OUR REGION IS SUCH A BIG PART OF OUR ECONOMY AND TO FOLD ALL THAT TOGETHER IN ONE EVENT — IT WAS A PERFECT FIT. WHEN WE CAME UP WITH THE IDEA , WE DID NOT WANT TO ALIENATE MEN IN ANY WAY BUT WE HAVE HAD OUR SPORTS COUNSELOR FOR SEVEN YEARS AND IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MALE SPEAKER. WE HAVE HAD SANDERS BUT WE WANTED SOMETHING TO CORRAL THE FEMALES AND LET THEM KNOW HOW EMPOWERING A SPEAKER LIKE THIS COULD BE. WE INITIALLY WERE GOING TO HAVE A LAST YEAR AT A SMALL CHURCH AND WE DID NOT KNOW HOW IT WOULD GO BUT WE HAD 410 PEOPLE SITTING THERE LISTENING TO THE MESSAGE AND IT WAS AMAZING. IT HAS NOT BEEN A HARD SELL THIS YEAR. I KNEW THAT IT WOULD BE HARD TO TOP HER AND NOT SAYING THAT WE DID BUT WE HAVE SWITCHED LOCATIONS AND TICKETS ARE ONLY $15 BUT THE STUDENT RATE IS $10. WE HAVE HAD A GREAT CONTINGENCY OF LOCAL BUSINESSES THAT HAVE COME ON BOARD AND ARE SPONSORING STUDENT ATHLETES AND STUDENTS TO COME SO NO LONGER ARE THEY DIGGING THROUGH THEIR POCKETS TO GET $10 IN CHANGE. THE COMMUNITY IS DEVELOPING AND IT WILL BE AMAZING. THIS IS A COMMUNITY EVENT AND A HAS TO MAKE YOU PROUD. DEFINITELY. IT DOES. LIKE WHAT TAMMY WAS SAYING, THE LOCAL BUSINESSES SEE THE BENEFIT IN CONCENTRATING ON THE YOUTH AND PROMOTING THE USE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITIES TO HEAR A SPEAKER LIKE WE WILL BE PRESENTING. IT’S AMAZING. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING . STAY WITH US THIS MORNING. WE HAVE A LOT GOING ON. WE HAVE THE HIGHTOPS LUNCHEON AND ALL THE INFORMATION FOR YOU ON THE SCREEN.
