Willa Hahn accepted in World Leadership Forum
Willa Hahn, a sixth grade student at Warm Springs Middle School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum. She will join a select group of students in Washington, D.C. during the week of March 26. During the week, she will study leadership and explore some of the United States' most prominent monuments and institutions and earn high school credit.
From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institute, and from Colonial Williamsburg to the National Museum of American History, Hahn and her fellow participants will examine the characteristics of American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity. Forum delegates will participate in small-group discussions and exercises to experience first-hand how successful leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consenus, and foster change. Student delegates represent most of the United States as well as the international community.
She was nominated and accepted for this prestigious experience based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement, and leadership potential.
The program is coordinated by People to People Student Ambassador Programs to fulfill the vision that Dwight D. Eisenhower had for fostering world citizenship when he founded People to People during his presidency in 1956.
