Washington University Leaders Program

Andres De Leon, senior, was selected to participate in the Economic History for Leaders program being conducted at Washington University, in St. Louis, Missouri, from July 23 - 29, 2018. Andres is one of 30 students from around the country who is honored by being accepted into the Foundation for Teaching Economics' Economic History for Leaders program in St. Louis (University of Washington). All of the students have been selected because they have demonstrated excellent leadership potential.


During the weeklong Economic History for Leaders program, students attain an understanding of economic reasoning principles and the economic forces that affected key events in American history, 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. Economic History for Leaders is an unparalleled learning and growing opportunity. Students who have attended Economic History for Leaders programs in prior years have called it "the experience of a lifetime."
