Passport Scholars will present highlights of their summer travel experiences at the Public Education Foundation on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the PEF Leadership Center, 3rd floor, 100 E. 10th St.
Passport Scholars are rising junior girls from Hamilton County public schools selected to participate in a rigorous summer enrichment program.
Officials said, "When they return – more confident, capable, and energized about their futures – Passport girls bring their experiences home to act as leaders in their schools and communities."
2012 Passport Scholars include:
Samantha Bond, East Hamilton High
Shannon Carney, Soddy Daisy High
Hong Chen, East Ridge High
Anna Derthick, CSAS
Taylor James, East Hamilton High
Brittney-Fay King, Red Bank High
Violet Parsons, East Ridge High
Sara Sanchez, Central High
Brooke Souders, Ooltewah High
Participants have created tabletop displays chronicling their summer learning experiences through photos and artwork. Attendees will circulate through these displays and hear directly from the Scholars about their summer programs, what they learned, and their future educational and career goals.
