CCHS student earns national recognition

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

CLAY CITY -- Elijah Stinson, a student at Clay City Junior/Senior High School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum.

Stinson will join a select group of students in Washington, D.C., June 21-26, 2010, to study leadership and explore some of the United States' most prominent monuments and institutions.

From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institute, and from historic Gettysburg to the National Museum of American History, Stinson 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 firsthand how successful leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consensus, and foster change.

Stinson was accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement and leadership potential.

The program is coordinated by People to People Leadership Programs to fulfill the vision President Dwight D. Eisenhower had for fostering world citizenship when he founded People to People International during his presidency in 1956.
