ELCA Youth Gathering

Viola Vaughn spoke at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America’s National Youth Gathering in New Orleans, Louisiana in July 2009. As a featured speaker in the Superdome, Viola spoke to over 38,000 high school students from throughout the world. Her message of the importance of education and self empowerment inspired these students to give back to their communities.
