Our Annual Texas Male Student Leadership Summit will take place at The University of Texas at Austin on August 17-18, 2017 at the Student Activity Center. This year marks the 4th year that we have hosted our Leadership Summit which is an invite-only event for institutional members of the Texas Education Consortium for Male Students of Color. The Summit brings together emerging male student leaders of color, as well as faculty, staff, and administrators from K-12 and higher education institutions from across the state of Texas, who are dedicated to their academic and personal success. This year we are excited to announce that our featured keynote speaker is Ernesto Mejia, the proud son of Mexican immigrants, is a true example of the American dream. Diagnosed with the rare disease of Guillain-Barré Syndrome at the age of 16 that left him temporarily paralyzed, he was not supposed to be a successful student, much less a College Dean of Students. Through his hardships, Mr. Mejia learned to never give up on life. A founding member of the Student Leadership Inspired by Consuelo Kickbusch (SLiCK) program, Mr. Mejia now speaks to students, parents and teachers about overcoming obstacles and never giving up on the American dream: education. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language and Literature from Eastern Michigan University and a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Lewis University. Our program this year as always highlights our students and student voice and features two student tracks, a panel of student leaders, student convening, and an arts, poetry and spoken word segment.
