“I was really excited when I got the invite. Never heard of it before but it turned out great,” said Warren.
Before he made the decision to accept his invitation he discussed the honor with the people he trusts the most.
“I decided to go when I talked it over with my coach and mom. We came to a conclusion that it was a big opportunity.”
