Power Hour progam kicks off March Madness

The next Jackson County Young Professionals’ Power Hour will be from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday in the auditorium at Schneck Medical Center, 411 W. Tipton St., Seymour.

Power Hour is a monthly professional development seminar series for young professionals living and/or working in Jackson County.

This event will kick off March Madness and focus on the Seymour High School basketball program.

The program, titled “Determined in Defeat: The Challenges of Building and Creating a Winner,” will feature Owls head coach Kyle Clough, who will share about being a leader that believes in a team before they believe in themselves.

Clough is in his second year as head coach. In his first year at the helm, he and his staff helped cut the margin of defeat from 2012 by 19.6 points per game. This season, the Owls continue rebuilding and becoming more competitive and relevant in the Hoosier Hills Conference.

Clough also started the Seymour Swish youth basketball program alongside the Seymour recreation league for players in kindergarten through sixth grade. This season, 239 young athletes were enrolled in the Seymour youth program.

Attendees are encouraged to grab a quick lunch in the hospital cafeteria to bring to this free event.
