McKeen is accepted into Leadership Forum
Dillon McKeen, a student at South Tahoe Middle School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum. The son of Mike and Lori McKeen of South Lake Tahoe, he was nominated and accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement and leadership potential.
McKeen will join a select group of students in Washington, D.C., March 5-11, 2007, to earn high school credit while studying leadership and exploring some of the United States’ most prominent monuments and institutions.
From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institute, and from Colonial Williamsburg to the National Museum of American History, McKeen will examine the characteristics of American Leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity. Forum delegates will also participate in small-group discussions and exercises to experience first-hand how successful leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consensus and foster change.
The program is coordinated by People to People Student Ambassador Programs to fulfill the vision Dwight D. Eisenhower had for fostering world citizenship when he founded People to People during his presidency in 1956.
