Moore selected for People to People
Lexington Trails Middle School student Owen Moore has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum. He will join a select group of students in Washington, D.C., in March 2008 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 Institution, and from Colonial Williamsburg to the National Museum of American History, Moore will examine the characteristics of American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity. 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.
Owen was nominated and accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement and leadership potential.
The program is coordinated by People to People Student Leader Programs to fulfill the vision President Dwight D. Eisenhower had for fostering world citizenship when he founded People to People during his presidency in 1956.
Owen is the son of Curt and Melissa Moore, De Soto.
