Bucyrus sixth grade student Samuel Rager, along with other outstanding sixth, seventh and eighth grade students from across the United States, will take part in an extraordinary leadership development experience, the 2014 Junior National Young Leaders Conference (JrNYLC): Foundations of Leadership I, an Envision program.

The program provides a historical view of leadership and encourages young scholars to develop their own leadership skills and strategies for success in the 21st century.

“The Junior National Young Leaders Conference enables students to recognize their own leadership abilities in the context of great men and women from the past and present,” said Marguerite Regan, Ph.D., the dean of academic affairs for JrNYLC. “They return home with new confidence in their ability to make a positive impact in their school and communities. Washington, D.C., serves as the perfect backdrop for this inspiring program to generate a new generation of U.S. leaders.”

At the six-day conference, Rager will take part in fun and exciting workshops and participate in simulations to confront the challenges faced by historic leaders from the nation’s past. Scholars also explore historically significant sites such as Harpers Ferry National Park and the National Mall to explore museums, monuments and memorials dedicated to U.S. founding fathers.

JrNYLC also takes students on an in-depth journey to view leadership challenges through the perspective of critical periods in American history: the Civil War Reconstruction, World War II, the Great Depression and the Civil Rights Movement, for example.

“The students gain greater sense of themselves, their roles to preserve American democracy and their responsibilities as tomorrow’s leaders,” Regan said.
