Blake Aaron accepted into People to People Academic Program

Program was founded by President Eisenhower in 1956; Adair student will earn high school credit for participation
Blake Aaron, a student at John Adair Intermediate School, Columbia, KY, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum.

Aaron will join a select group of students in Washington, DC, April 3-9, to earn high school credit while studying leadership and exploring some of the United States' most prominent monuments and institutions.

Blake will examine the characteristics of American leadership from Capitol Hill to the Smithsonina Institute, Colonial Williamsburg, and the National Museum of American History.

As a forum delegate, Blake 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.

Blake was nominated and accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement, and leadership potential.

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 Peole during his presidency in 1956.
