Local Youngster Selected For Conference In D.C.

Terrence Mitchell (left), 11, of Remsen Avenue will join 200 middle school students from across the country at the Junior National Young Leaders Conference (JrNYLC) from January 31 through February 5 in Washington, D.C.

The annual Conference introduces young people to leadership throughout American history, while helping them develop their own leadership skills. Mitchell will participate in educational activities as well as visit historic national landmarks, including Colon-ial Williamsburg, from which our country took shape.

"By participating, in the conference, students like Mitchell learn early that young people are not only welcome in Washington, D.C., but they actually keep this city and our country running," said Mike Lasday, executive director of the Congressional Youth Leadership Council, the organization that sponsors JrNYLC.
