Crockett Elementary student selected for prestigious program

People to People World Leadership Program delegate Ezekiel Jordan.

STAFF REPORT

The People to People World Leadership Program was founded in 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to foster world citizenship. Students from grades 5-8 from around the world participate in the program and have access to top government leaders and renowned public speakers.

The forum carefully selects students to participate in the program. Crockett Elementary School’s Ezekiel Jordan was chosen recently to be one of those student-delegates.  He was selected based on his outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement and leadership potential. He was nominated for this honor by Crockett Principal, Rick LaBuhn.

Since Sept. 21, Jordan has been in Washington D.C. studying leadership and exploring some of America’s most prominent monuments and institutions. The week long program continues until Sept. 26.

Capital Hill, the Smithsonian Institution, Colonial Williamsburg and the National Museum of American History are just some of the places Jordan and his fellow delegates will go to examine American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity. Forum delegates also participate in small discussion groups and exercises to have a first-hand experience in how leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consensus and foster change.
