This summer, Marshall Shearin from Johnson City will join outstanding Middle school students from across the nation to take part in a unique academic and career-oriented development experience, National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Pathways to STEM at Wake Forest University this summer.
NYLF Pathways to STEM is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.
Marshall was nominated to attend the forum by his fifth grade teacher at St. Mary’s Catholic School. Marshall is passionate about sports and plays basketball and soccer on local Johnson City teams. Marshall is looking forward to gaining the hands-on experience that the forum provides.
“NYLF Pathways to STEM is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the Chief Academic Officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, will be challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.”
Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
