I am pleased to announce that this fall, one of our outstanding eighth graders, Alex, and other eighth and ninth grade students from across Georgia will take part in a unique leadership development program in Atlanta. Themed Courageous Leadership, the National Young Leaders State Conference (NYLSC), sponsored by the Congressional Youth Leadership Council (CYLC), helps attendees take an introspective and highly personalized assessment of their leadership skills and abilities.
The Congressional Youth Leadership Council is a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization. Founded in 1985, the Council is committed to fostering and inspiring young people to achieve their full leadership potential. More than 400 members of the U.S. Congress join this commitment by serving on the CYLC Honorary Congressional Board of Advisors. In addition, more than 40 embassies participate in the Council's Honorary Board of Embassies.
Congratulations, Alex! I know your parents could not be any more proud of you. As your principal, I believe in my heart that you will in fact live up to my dream that our students will leave Mabry and go on to make the world a better place!
