LOCUST VALLEY, NY and WASHINGTON, DC -- Hayley Jennings Caronia, a 7th Grade student at Locust Valley Junior Senior High School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum. Caronia will join a select group of sixth, seventh and eighth grade student leaders in Washington, DC April 2-8, 2007 to earn high school credit while studying leadership and exploring some of the United States’ most prominent monuments and institutions.
From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institute, and from Colonial Williamsburg to the National Museum of American History, Hayley will examine the characteristics of American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity. Forum delegates will also participate in group discussions and exercises to experience first-hand how successful leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consensus, and foster change.

Hayley was nominated by 6th grade teacher Janet Weiss of Locust Valley Intermediate School and accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement and leadership potential. The People to People World Leadership Forum helps prepare the world’s most promising young people for the opportunities and responsibilities ahead.
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 People during his presidency in 1956.
