Salisbury student to attend leadership forum
SALISBURY — This summer Tucker Sheldrick of Salisbury will join outstanding elementary school students from across the state to take part in a unique academic and career-oriented development experience, the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Pathways to STEM, taking place in Boston, Mass.
NYLF Pathways to STEM is one of the Envision by WorldStrides family of programs (envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Tucker was nominated to attend the forum by his fourth grade teacher at Salisbury Community School. Tucker is passionate about sports and plays baseball, football and wrestles on local Middlebury teams. With hopes of being involved in the professional world of sports, Tucker is looking forward to adding to his math skills and gaining new friends.
“As an alumna of Envision myself, I am excited for Tucker to meet, work, and collaborate with fellow high-aspiring students from other cities and schools,” said Amanda Freitag Thomas, senior vice president for Envision. “At NYLF Pathways to STEM, students build the confidence and skills needed to excel in the classroom while gaining exposure to STEM fields and concepts. They learn how to adapt to and communicate in new situations, to new challenges, and with new people, which, given how rapidly the world is changing due to technology and innovation, are essential skills for success.”
