BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Every day young men and women filter the noise and clutter of today's world in search of fundamental truths. Messages, both overt and subliminal inundate the senses and have the ability to shape thoughts and actions.
The importance of countering negative influences surrounding our youth, particularly males, was writer and editor Kelly Harrington Johnson's call to action.
"A Better Man is my effort to share the kinds of stories boys want and need to hear: stories about right and wrong and courage and integrity and service," Johnson said.
Today, Johnson brings the power of these stories to Brunswick County.
Selected students in all Brunswick County high schools will have the opportunity to meet and hear first-hand answers to the very important question, "What does it really mean to be a man?"
