Douglas's Big Adventure

I am so proud I can't stand it! Douglas leaves tomorrow for the Jr. National Young Leaders Conference in Wahsington D.C. He was nominated by his Math Club teacher "who recongnized him as one of a select group of students with scholastic merit, maturity and strenght of character to represent Bluejacket-Flint Elementary School at this unique leadership program for exceptional 6th & 7th graders." This is a once in a lifetime experience for him that we just couldn't pass up. The activities include: walking tour of Capitol Hill, activities on leadership & group meetings, visit to Harpers Ferry, tour of our Nation's Memorials, visit to the American History Museum, visit to the White House and more.
