Feldmann accepted into People to People program

Hamilton High School freshman Riley Feldmann was selected to participate in the People to People Leadership Summit June 15 – 24, 2009 at Columbia University in New York City and George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Feldmann is among a selected group of students who were nominated and accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement and leadership potential.

Feldmann will work with outstanding student leaders from around the globe to focus on leadership, team building, community service, college admissions and professional aspirations. Students work on an action plan to make a difference in their communities, develop skills to help them lead tomorrow’s world and work on college entrance requirements, while earning academic or service-learning credit.

The program is coordinated by the People to People Ambassador Programs to fulfill the vision President Dwight D. Eisenhower had for fostering world citizenship when he founded it during his presidency in 1956.
