  • Annual Summit 2016 Sponsors
  • The Annual Summit was an idea spawned by the leadership of Morton College and that concept became a reality in 2011. The Summit plays an important role in fulfilling the mission of Morton College. The goal of the Summit is to offer learning opportunities and community services that will provide attendees with a sense of empowerment and enhance their quality of life.

    The Summit has evolved into bringing in motivated students from the local high schools to participate in networking with local executives and spending a day on campus to learn about the higher education process and potential careers. This has proved to be a rewarding experience for all involved.
