Island Trees Memorial Middle School is proud to announce that Ryan Shea, an 8th grader, has been accepted into The People to People program, which "provides opportunities for young students to become the future leaders of the global community."
Each year students across the United States travel to Washington D.C. to participate in a training program that focuses on developing communication and leadership skills.
Shea was nominated by Mrs. Longhway, his former sixth grade teacher. Last week, Shea traveled to Washington D.C. to be trained as a World Leadership Ambassador.
"Leadership Ambassadors are high-achieving students with a drive to succeed," according to the People to People website. "At the People to People Leadership Summits, they are equipped with the skills and confidence to make a difference in their lives, community, and the world."
Dr. Roger Bloom, Principal at Island Trees Memorial Middle School, congratulated Shea on his accomplishment.
