From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
PINSON –This summer, Kyla Thompson from Pinson is joining outstanding elementary school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic development experience, the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Pathways to STEM, taking place this summer in Atlanta, GA.
NYLF Pathways to STEM is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Thompson was nominated by her talented and gifted program teacher Teresa Purser at Kermit Johnson Elementary.
“NYLF Pathways to STEM is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the Chief Academic Officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, are challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
