St. Michael’s student returns from leadership forum
WASHINGTON - Hunter Jon Lambert, upcoming eighth grader at St. Michael, recently returned from Washington, D.C., where he attended a “People to People Leadership Forum.”
Lambert, along with fellow delegates from around the world, participated in discussions and leadership roles. Lambert received an outstanding Academic Achievement certificate for his participation.
Throughout the course of the program, he learned about leadership and how great leaders throughout history have handled world events. Various hands-on activities, professional speakers, workshops and visits to significant memorials, museums and monuments gave Lambert a new perspective on the importance and essential need for informed, passionate world leaders.
The People to People World Leadership Forum offers students a unique blend of special educational, leadership and cultural exposure through a variety of programs, as well as an itinerary filled with the highlights of the hosting community. While in Washington, D.C., Lambert formed many lasting friendships with other student leaders from around the world.
Participants in these programs often experience life-changing shifts in their attitudes toward individual and shared responsibilities, global leadership and appreciation of cultural diversity, while they also return home with enhanced skills and self-confidence.
