The oldest Boomers are now in their early 70s and will be replaced by the Millennials (age 23-38) over the next couple of decades. The impact of the Millennials, however, is already significant. Socially, economically, and politically, this is a different group.

 

Join us for an insightful look at what local Springfield initiatives could help keep our young people here, attract our young people back, and attract young people from across the globe.

 

Julio Barrenzuela moved from Peru to Springfield at an early age, completed elementary and high school in the Springfield schools, joined the US Navy, and graduated from SIUC. He received a M.S. from Woodbury University in Burbank, California, and has begun a Ph.D. program at Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, California. Julio splits time between Springfield, Illinois and California.

 

Justin Carter traded his East Coast lifestyle for the Midwest. Relocating from Rochester, New York, with stints in Erie and Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, he joined the WICS-TV team as morning news anchor. Born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Justin caught the "theatre bug" and channeled that into broadcasting when he majored in Journalism and Communication at the University of Pittsburg.

 

David Lee was born and raised in Springfield and was a three-sport athlete at Springfield High. He graduated from Augustana College, breaking nearly every passing record in school history. Pursuing a career in the medical device field, David spent three years in the Quad Cities before moving back to Springfield. He takes a lot of pride in striving to make Springfield a place where people would love to live.

 

Elizabeth Scrafford is originally from Northern Idaho and currently works with the Sierra Club managing community organizers in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ohio. Now living in Springfield, until recently she was an organizer on the Beyond Coal Campaign. She has lived in Kumming, China; Anchorage, Alaska; and Chicago. She graduated from DePaul University, double majoring in Religious & Cultural Studies and Peace, Justice, & Conflict Resolution.
