15 and 30 a rousing success.

The new organization ’15 and 30,’ the brainchild of Sonya Davis, local finance professional and entrepreneur, held its first event on December 17, titled “ Who’s Holding Your Future.” at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Nashville, TN 37214 on 2508 Elm Hill Pike.

The event embraced young African American males in the Nashville area and surrounding communities, bringing together accomplished local professional African American men to speak on various issues concerning progression and positivity. Among the topics on the agenda were youth entrepreneurship, education and self-evolution.

After a lively icebreaker from Christy Nicholson-Shelton where random youth were selected to come to the podium and speak about what they planned to do in the next 10 years, the floor was opened to attendees. There was a heartfelt discussion and testimony from the audience, adding to the relevant discussion of the panelist and invoking motivation and inspiration for the young men who were proclaimed VIPs for the evening.

Guest speakers were comprised of gentlemen from various vocations, including: a coach, a firefighter, engineers, an accountant and a successful real estate businessman. Various other local men stood in representation and support. The Campus Life Director, Richard Murphy of the 12-year-old nonprofit, ‘4:13’ Strong attended and spoke about the importance of having self respect, respect for others and how youth can encourage other youth. His wife and recent graduate of 4:13 accompanied him. The graduate was once on the wrong track, but now holds four trade certifications because of the program.
