SU Ag Center Helps to make the Vision Clearer at local High Schools in 2016

Vision board materials.

Kentwood High Magnet School O.M.G. Club members use visual materials to complete their individual vision boards, which represent their personal goals for 2016.

Kentwood, La. – On Wednesday, January 20th the Southern University Ag Center hosted a Vision Board Party for the Outstanding Mature Girlz (O.M.G.) Club at Kentwood High Magnet School.  There were 40 young ladies in attendance, anxiously waiting to create a visual of positive affirmations that reflected their personal goals for 2016.

Vision boards are visual representations of what an individual envisions for their life. Individuals are encourage to use personal photos or visual materials to define their year-long aspirations and goals. 

“I was really excited to see so many young ladies not only include college on their vision boards, but they were also cutting out magazine clippings that represented our beloved Southern University,” said SU Ag Center’s Assistant Area Agent, Nicolette Gordon.

After the club members completed their vision boards they were instructed to hang their boards in a place where they could view their dreams and aspirations daily. 

The next vision board party is scheduled to take place at St. Helena College & Career Academy in February.
