Every year the Desert Town Hall Speaker Series brings world renown personalities to the Renaissance Esmeralda in Indian Wells. The 25th Speaker Series season kicked off on January 16th with Astronaut Scott Kelly, who returned to Earth last March after spending an entire year aboard the International Space Station. Of course, IMPACT students were on hand to capture the evening's happenings.
Before the main event, Desert Town Hall speakers participate in a Youth Town Hall forum with students from all 10 Coachella Valley high schools. Youth Town Hall gives students the opportunity to hear incredible stories and participate in questions and answer sessions with the featured speakers.
IMPACT students will be on hand at each of this year's events to create short promotional documentaries featuring event overviews and firsthand accounts through student interviews.
