Tony Rios, a junior at Gordon Central High School and a member of the National Honor Society, has been accepted into the Leadership Enterprise for a Diverse America summer program hosted on the campus of Princeton University. LEDA is a national, nonprofit program dedicated to developing the leadership potential of public high school students. The program provides high school juniors with the necessary resources to attend prestigious and highly selective universities in order to ease their transition to college. LEDA Scholars spend the summer taking classes on leadership, receiving one – on – one college counseling, preparing for standardized tests, and honing their writing skills. Only 100 students nationwide are accepted each year into LEDA’s summer program, and GC is so proud that Tony is one of them!
