Goretti students attends leadership conference

August 04, 2008

Austin Longnecker, a student at St. Maria Goretti High School in Hagerstown, attended the 2008 Global Leadership Summit, sponsored by LeadAmerica, at American University in Washington, D.C., and Fordham University New York City.

The Global Leadership Summit is a college-accredited invitational leadership program for academically talented and promising young leaders from across the United States and international community.

Exceptional high school students with records of academic achievement and extracurricular or community involvement, are invited to participate in this summer program.

At the Global Leadership Summit, students explored leadership on a global level and the factors that affect the international balance of power and peace. In a hands-on learning environment, Austin and fellow students were presented with real-life international crises or disruptions of peace and tackled the issues acting as a head of government, an emissary from an international organization or a representative of a special interest group.
