The Legacy Summit was amazing. Everything from the speakers in the sessions to the workshops were carefully organized so that they catered to the interests of students and inspired them to take action on their personal goals and passion for ending the Global Water Crisis. – Justin Englund, Student at Kentwood High School
This weekend was genuinely one of the best experiences of my life. It was so inspiring and motivating to be surrounded by the contagious energy of everyone at Thirst Project, hear from the insightful speakers, and of course to be surrounded by other students passionate about ending the global water crisis. I’ve been to conferences similar to the summit in the past, but I believe that the Legacy Summit was the best I’ve attended by far. Thirst Project not only successfully imparted lessons and skills for us to take back to our communities, but also galvanized us to do exactly that. – Jaya Dayal, Lake Highland Preparatory School
