SKyPAC was full of more than a thousand middle and high school students today for Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky's 11th annual Teen Summit.

The event teaches students about what they can do now to prepare for college, and have success now and in the future.

Organizers brought in a speaker who found his own success literally climbing mountains.

"The mountains that he's climbed all over the world, and things like that... and how he started out when he was in middle school, and how someone came and spoke to him at an assembly at his school, and how that really motivated him to do something with his life," said Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky Program Manager Megan Micheli.

The event also featured a panel of college and career experts who answered student's questions on how to prepare for life after high school.

Students from 15 schools in five counties were at the summit.
