Good Afternoon Educators,
We'd like to invite your students to an upcoming leadership workshop for high school students. The Wilson Pickett, Jr. Legacy LLC and the City of Prattville are sponsoring the Leadership in the Arts for High School Students Workshop - Prattville, on March 16, 2019 in conjunction with the 2019 Wilson Pickett Music and Arts Festival. The Wilson Pickett, Jr. Legacy LLC administrates the Wilson Pickett Book Awards and Scholarship Fund, the Wilson Pickett Music and Arts Festival as well as theatrical productions in Atlanta and surrounding areas. Based upon leadership and commitment to advancing the arts in your school, community, or in their personal work, we are asking high school administrators or teachers to recommend two students for participating in this workshop.
The 2019 Leadership in the Arts for High School Students Workshop will be held at the Montgomery Marriott Prattville Hotel and Conference Center at Capitol Hill on Saturday, March 16, 2019 from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. Participants will engage in a day of interactive experiences in the area of arts leadership. The session includes discussions with:

Call or email Kenique Freeman at (770) 376-7154 or email@example.com with any questions or to provide the names, phone numbers, and email addresses of two student leaders you or your colleagues would like to recommend. We'll provide personalized invitations to you or their school office for distribution to the students. The students and their parents can then contact us to RSVP or to further discuss.
Please forward the names of the students you are recommending by Friday, March 1st and we can get the invitations to your school to be hand-delivered. This will allow time for student/parent consideration and RSVP. Thank you for your assistance.
