St. Patrick students nominated for Junior National Young Leaders Conference

Ten St. Patrick students have been nominated to take part in the prestigious Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C. in the summer.  The students will be able to choose one of thirteen sessions to attend.

The Junior National Young Leaders Conference is a conference lasting five to six days in Washington, DC.  The conference is for talented young students in the fifth through the seventh grade to learn new leadership skills.  Students that attend are able to meet and collaborate with other talented students.  They will be able to take part in hands-on exercises, workshops, and special visits to historical sites.  The hope is that the students will take the leadership skill they learn at the conference back home for the betterment of their communities.

The conference focuses on influential figures in American history and social advocacy.  Students are able to step into the history books themselves by visiting historical locations such as Harpers Ferry and Capitol Hill.  They will also be able to stay overnight in the Maryland Science Center.  The Junior National Young Leaders Conference is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.

St. Patrick has nominated students Kelsey Descher, Quinn Pisciotta, Camille Pitre, Gabriela Quintana, Diego Riojas, Ella Sharp, Anna Tran, Jadon Turner, Allison Ware, and Claire Wingfield to attend the Junior National Young Leaders Conference.  The students will be able attend any one of the thirteen possible sessions over the summer.

Congratulations to the students nominated!  We hope you take advantage of this great opportunity!
