Local student selected to participate in national leadership program

Kansas City- Margot Robison, a junior at Park Hill High School in 2013-2014, has been selected to participate in the Economics for Leaders program being conducted at the University of Colorado, Boulder from June 22 - 29, 2014. Margot Robison is one of 32 students from around the country who is honored by being accepted into the Foundation for Teaching Economics' Boulder Economics for Leaders program. All of the students have been selected because they have demonstrated excellent leadership potential.
During the week-long Economics for Leaders program, students attain an understanding of economic reasoning principles and how to employ these concepts for successful and effective leadership. Additionally, participants achieve a heightened awareness of the impact their decisions have on others and the responsibility that awareness imposes. Economics for Leaders is an unparalleled learning and growing opportunity. Students who have attended Economics for Leaders programs in prior years have called it "the experience of a lifetime."
