Fifth and sixth graders at East Austin College Prep Academy had the opportunity to participate in the GamePlan Leadership Seminar, an initiative  led by Intellectual Entrepreneurship Pre Grad Mentorship director Tommy Darwin, Dr. Christy Youker of Texas Disposal Systems, and UT-Austin Heisman Trophy Winner Ricky Williams. The students were given tools and learned skills on empowerment, dreaming big and achieving anything that they put their minds to—principles at the core of IE’s curriculum and philosophy of education.
