July 25th - Morning Keynote: Mason Metzger
18year-old Mason Metzger is an award winning motivational speaker based in Silver Lake, Indiana. Mason has been an impactful leader within the Warsaw Community School District. Mason began using adaptive technology such as speech recognition in fourth grade. The use of technology helps Mason compensate for the challenges that having a disability presents. He uses a power wheelchair to get around. Mason’s dream of being a motivational speaker took flight in 2014 after listening to a presentation by Superintendent Dr. David Hoffert and Professional Learning Coach, Lorinda Kline. Since that day, Mason has spoken to a variety of audiences. Most recently Mason was named a 2017 Riley Hospital for Children Champion. Mason is beyond excited to be one of our speakers for this year's conference.
