Talent Search participants attend 25th Annual National Student Leadership Congress in Washington, D.C.
Three participants from Rich Mountain Community College Talent Search program represented Montgomery, Polk, and Scott counties at the 25th Annual National Student Leadership Congress in Washington, D.C.
Eduardo Medina from Cossatot River High School, Benjamin Roseberry from Waldron High School, and Carmen Ruiz from Caddo Hills High School were among the 150 rising juniors and seniors throughout the country chosen to attend.
The event will be held June 7- 12 and is sponsored by the Council for Opportunity in Education. Students from the federal TRIO programs which include Talent Search were eligible to attend. The Talent Search program serves students in grades 6-12 and works to prepare them for college.
The delegates to the Leadership Congress were chosen based on their leadership potential and participation in the Talent Search program. They will stay at American University and will participate in a Mock Congress.
As part of the week’s activities, students will go to Capitol Hill to visit with their members of Congress, tour several of the monuments located in D.C., tour Union Station, and participate in team building activities.
