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."
