St. Paul student to go to Washington D.C.
This summer, Sierra Stoltenberg from St. Paul Elementary will join outstanding middle school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic and career-oriented development experience, the Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C.
The Junior National Young Leaders Conference is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Sierra was nominated to attend the conference by her teacher Dorinda Hempel at St. Paul Elementary School. In addition to participating in the school's leadership group, Sierra is also passionate about sports and plays basketball and softball. With dreams of becoming an architectural engineer, Sierra is looking forward to gaining the leadership and goal setting tools to help achieve this dream.
The Junior National Young Leaders Conference is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively, according to Andrew Potter, the chief academic officer for Envision. "These students, who have already proven themselves academically, will be challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life," he said.
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today's competitive college and career landscape.
