The following three MLWGS students have been accepted into the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership at the University of Virginia for the summer High School Leaders Program: Maggie Chambers, Catherine Emblidge and Logan Ferrell. Congratulations Dragons!
From the Sorenson Institute website: The Sorensen Institute's High School Leaders Program (HSLP) offers concentrated study in Virginia politics and government for high school students from across the state. The HSLP is based on a firm belief that young people not only can make a positive difference in their communities, they should be strongly encouraged to do so. Our High School Leaders Program gives students the practical skills and political knowledge to become effective advocates in their communities and schools. Participants engage in substantive debate about the public policy challenges facing the Commonwealth and interact with Virginia's political and business leaders. The two-week HSLP is held each summer on grounds at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. More Info: www.sorenseninstitute.org/programs/hslp.
