New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 29, 2003, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2B — Herald-Zeitung — Wednesday, October 29, 2003 GOODFORYOU REBECCA S. ROGERS/Herald-Zeitung Bradley Nasis. Alton Seay student to attend national forum Bradley Nasis, a student at Arlon Seay Intermediate School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum. Nasis will join a group of students in Washington, D.C. Nov. 3 through 9. From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institute, and from Colonial Williamsburg to the National Museum of American History, students will delve into the characteristics of American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity. Delegates will participate in small-group discussions and exercises to experience first hand how successful leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consensus and foster change. Nasis was nominated and accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement and leadership potential. The program is coordinated by People to People Ambassador Programs to fulfill the vision Dwight D. Eisenhower had for fostering world citizenship when he junded People to People during his presidency in 1956.
