James, the son of Butch and Greta Stone, has been accepted into the People to People Leadership Summit at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, June 20-29, 2010.
People to People student Leaders complete an academically rigorous program focused on leadership development and global awareness. Stone was nominated and accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement, and leadership potential.
The People to People Leadership Summits bring together outstanding Student Leaders from around the globe to focus on leadership, teambuilding, community service, college admissions, and professional aspirations. Students learn how to effectively make a difference in their communities, develop skills to help them lead tomorrow's world, and build their college resumes, with the chance to earn academic or service-learning credit.
Participants also gain insights to guide their educational and professional careers, and benefit from a strong focus on college admissions. Through workshops, presentations, excursions, and discussions, student leaders attain a clear advantage as they pursue their selected fields of interest. Students will have the opportunity to meet with admissions officers and gain valuable advice for navigating the college application process. In some locations, students will be able to tour several area universities.
The 2010 People to People Leadership Summits will convene at Columbia University; George Washington University; Johns Hopkins University; Harvard University; Stanford University; Rice University; University of Chicago; University of Pennsylvania, and University of California, Los Angeles.
The program is coordinated by People to People Ambassador Programs to fulfill the vision President Dwight D. Eisenhower had for fostering world citizenship when he founded People to People International during his presidency in 1956. For additional information please visit peopletopeople.com/leadership.
