SHERMAN, Tex. -- Prominent Youth is a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities to teenagers across the U.S. The founder of the organization was in Sherman to share his vision Monday night.
Prominent Youth, or PY, was founded in 2005. The goal of the organization is to give young people the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship, and realize their potential.
Trenell Walker is a Sherman man who was paralyzed at the age of 14 during a Bearcat football game. He is now a motivational speaker and a supporter of Prominent Youth.
"I know that youth is in the future, because I'm still a youth myself. I always want to inspire youth to see the best in themselves, fulfill their passion," Walker said.
