Emily’s Path recently gave $1,000 to help send a John Muir Middle School student to a 4 day leadership conference. The conference is specifically for the most highly motivated students in the nation, focusing on core leadership power tools that provide scholars with critical skills essential for success in life.
The young woman sponsored by Emily’s Path is a highly motivated second-language learner with a very supportive family. She was nominated by her teachers to attend the leadership conference, and was selected for participation. She was given a scholarship which covered a portion of the cost of attending. Unfortunately, her father recently lost his job, and the trip was not a financial reality for her. Then her English teacher contacted Emily’s Path to ask for assistance. We are so pleased we were able to help this student attend the conference, and hope that the experience will help her to further develop essential skills that will help to make her one of tomorrow’s leaders.
