Mary B. Austin Elementary School, with great pleasure announces that one of its talented fourth grade students, Kennyde Williams, won a scholarship to attend the People to People Leadership Summit. The Summit will be held at Harvard University in 2014. Kennyde was nominated by her teacher, Jessica McNellage, because she consistently demonstrates aptitudes for scholarship, leadership, and citizenship. Leadership Ambassadors, chosen for this program, come from across the United States as well as 140 additional countries. They build leadership skills, self-confidence, and relationships with their peers while preparing to become the leaders of tomorrow. The Summit brings to life history, government, and politics.
Kennyde will experience:
·A Congressional Speaker Panel where she will have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of Congressional members and staff.
·An “insider” tour of the Capitol District featuring the U.S. Supreme Court, Halls of Congress, and supporting areas led by a guide who specializes in the history of these sites.
·World-renowned speakers - past speakers include Colin Powell, former First Lady Laura Bush, Astronaut Roger Crouch, and Dr. Hamid Al-Bayati, the United Nations’ Ambassador to Iraq.
·An exclusive Embassy Dinner offering a number of special cultural activities and a formal presentation from key diplomatic officials.
