Joseph Salazar, a student at Moreno Middle School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum. Salazar will join a select group of students in Washington, D.C., July 1-7, to study leadership and explore some of the United States’ most prominent monuments and institutions.
From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institution and from historic Gettysburg to the National Museum of American History, Salazar will examine the characteristics of American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity. Forum delegates also will participate in small-group discussions and exercises to experience firsthand how successful leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consensus and foster change.
Salazar 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. For additional information visit peopletopeople.com/leadership.
