Four Local SSMS Students Taking Part in Envision’s Junior National Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.
This summer, Jack Bain, Merrin Williams, Jocelyne Yanez, and Khira Young from Sulphur Springs, Texas, will join outstanding middle school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic and career oriented development experience, Envision’s Junior National Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.
The Junior National Leadership Conference is one of the Envision family of programs that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
These four local SSISD students were nominated by SSMS teacher, Melissa Peugh, for their outstanding academic, extracurricular, and leadership abilities among local students.
Envision’s Junior National Leadership Conference in Washington D.C. is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the Chief Academic Officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, will be challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
