Tremont Montessori student accepted to national leadership program

(Plain Press, February 2007) Brittany Gerhart, a student at Tremont Montessori School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum. Gerhart will join a select group of students in Washington, D.C. from April 9-15 to earn high school credit while studying leadership and exploring some of the United States’ most prominent monuments and institutions.

Gerhart will examine the characteristics of American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity while visiting Capital Hill, the Smithsonian Institute, Colonial Williamsburg and the National Museum of American History. Forum delegates 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.

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

People to People Student Ambassador Programs coordinates the program in an effort to fulfill President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s vision to foster world citizenship when he founded People to People in 1956.
