People to People
Jordan Oglesby, a student from Knox Middle School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum.
Ogelsby will join a select group of students in Washington, D.C., June 28-July 3, 2010, to study leadership and explore some of the United States’ most prominent monuments and institutions.
From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institution, and from Gettysburg to the National Museum of American History, Oglesby will examine the characteristics of American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity. Forum delegates will also participate in small group discussions and exercises to experience how successful leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consensus and foster change.
