Washington, D.C. – Congressman David Rouzer will be hosting a youth leadership conference for high school juniors in the 7th Congressional District on Wednesday, October 18th.

This conference is being conducted in coordination with North Carolina State University’s General Hugh Shelton Leadership Center as well as participation of the UNC Wilmington Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. In addition to a lineup of speakers -- including Marsha Prestage of Prestage Farms and Colonel J.
