Elizabeth Smart Headlines the Issues Community Conference
The 32nd annual Issues Community Conference will be held Wednesday, March 2, 2022 at Wasatch High School from 6:00-8:30 pm. The conference is free of charge for all those who attend. This year’s keynote speaker is Elizabeth Smart. The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. At the tender age of 14, Elizabeth went to sleep in her family home just as she had always done. Hours later, she was kidnapped and held captive for nine long months. In this captivating message, Elizabeth shares her incredible story of perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity. Her speech not only tells her personal story, but also discusses topics such as overcoming extreme adversity, the importance, and process of recovery, and not allowing your past to dictate your life’s future. Elizabeth knows that there is nothing more important than having hope in a difficult situation. Having lived through an extreme circumstance as a young teenager, Elizabeth gives great insight and hope to all.
Following the keynote speaker, a variety of interesting and informative workshops will be offered. This year’s workshops include; Elevate Your Vision, The Happiness Formula, How to Save a Life, Zero Fatalities, Defend Yourself, The Latest on Vaping, and many more.
