Following his 2014 graduation from UVI, alumni Kevin Dixion is continuing the youth outreach efforts he started during his college days, when he served as SGA president on St. Croix and organized several Shadow Our Students projects. This summer Dixon is working as an assistant for the Elite Males LeadersCamp program to be held at Missouri State University from July 21 to 25.
LeadersCamp is a retreat program for high school and college students designed to challenge and develop leadership skills. LeadersCamp is the brainchild of entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker Hezekiah Griggs III, who is producing his seventh camp this summer. More than 100 minority young men who want to become 'elite' in their daily life are expected to participate. During the camp, successful speakers and community mentors provide the unique LeadersCamp programming that includes leadership instruction, workshops, keynote addresses, and programmed recreational activities.
Dixon has been actively recruiting possible participants on St. Croix and is now in the process of trying to arrange funding or sponsorships. For more information, contact Dixon at (340) 227-9840 or Dixon_Kevin@live.com.
