Pondo student headed to Berkeley leadership program

Aubrey Hutcheson, Ponderosa High School class of 2013, has been selected to participate in the National Student Leadership Conference on Journalism and Mass Communication this summer at UC Berkeley.

During the conference, Aubrey will attend specialized workshops and classes designed to develop the skills and traits that define a leader. Leading professionals and professors from top colleges facilitate the programs and engage the students in hands-on activities that provide students with a day-in-the-life understanding of a prospective career. Trips and tours also enhance the student’s experience, by tailoring them to their specific conference.

Aubrey will also have the opportunity to meet with and learn from recognized leaders. Past special guest speakers have included: Secretary of Education Rod Paige; CIA Director Michael Hayden; U.S. Senators, governors, ambassadors and leaders in the fields of medicine, business, engineering, diplomacy, journalism and the arts.

This year, thousands of high school students from across the U.S. and around the world will find themselves immersed in a learning environment unlike they have ever experienced.

These young leaders spend time with other high-achieving students who share the same drive to succeed. Then they will return to their schools with increased potential and newly developed abilities that will enable them to make a positive difference in their communities.

The NSLC is entering it’s 21st summer, continuing with a mission: Identify and recognize outstanding young leaders from around the world, and provide them with a unique learning environment that encourages not only academic achievement, but also diversity, cooperation, and social responsibility.

As a sophomore at Ponderosa, the Cameron Park resident received his varsity letter as a wrestler; participated in the Every 15 Minutes program; held a leading role in the fall play, “The Crucible;” and began his second summer working as a lifeguard for the Cameron Park Community Services District. He is honored to have been chosen to represent Ponderosa at the NSLC this summer.
