Green Bay Packers' Empower event inspires 160 students

Green Bay - The Green Bay Packers held their 3rd annual Empower program at Lambeau Field on Wednesday to inspire girls to make an impact in their communities.

160 middle schoolers heard from speakers about how to become effective leaders and positive role models. They created an "I Will" statement to push themselves to go above and beyond to benefit others.

"Our hope is that they will take this messaging back to their schools, their friends, to their families, and realize that they are important, that they are leaders, and that they can make a positive change in this world," said Amanda Wery, Packers Community Outreach Coordinator.

NBC26's Stacy Engebretson had the honor of serving on a five person panel discussion. They covered a wide range of topics including bullying and overcoming stereotypes.

On Thursday, NBC26 Chief Meteorologist Cameron Moreland will be an Empower panelist as the Packers welcome area boys to Lambeau Field.

In May, the students will report back on their progress.
