Local people: Barkdoll travels to young leaders conference

Ivy Rose Barkdoll traveled to Washington D.C. this week for the Junior National Young Leaders Conference, joining more than 250 outstanding middle school students from across the United States.

Ivy is an 11-year-old who was chosen to represent Scarcelli Elementary school because she is an exemplary student maintaining a 4.0 GPA. She would like to become a kindergarten teacher. Ivy has volunteered with Kinder Buddies, Cheetah Club and Anti-bullying Weekly. Ivy is also in the gifted and talented program at Scarcelli.

Ivy is granddaughter of long time local resident Laurie Ault and daughter of Rebecca Smith and Brandon Barkdoll. She was sponsored by many people, including her grandmother Diana Thomas, grandmothers, grandfathers, great-grandmothers and great-grandfathers, friends, neighbors and many others who were kind enough to help Ivy travel to Washington for this wonderful experience.
