Inspire Iowa's Future is a nonprofit organization that works to continue the legacy of building leaders for tomorrow by inspiring Iowa's youth today. In doing so, we have created an annual speaker series. Through this series, we aim to reach middle school, high school, and college age students, as well as the adults that interact with these young people regularly. Inspire Iowa's Future is sponsoring a free event at the Knapp Center on September 18th featuring Maddie Poppe from American Idol and Jon Mero from The Voice. This years event focuses on mental health and will also include a speaker, Sadie Penn, who attempted suicide. She has an encouraging message for people who struggle with suicidal thoughts, and how to recognize signs to help those around us.
