Selbyville Middle School student to take part in young leaders’ conference

OCEAN VIEW – This summer, Addison Jerns of Ocean View will join outstanding middle school students from across the nation in a unique academic and career-oriented development experience – the Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C.

The Junior National Young Leaders Conference is one of the Envision family of programs ( that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.

The conference will be held June 17-22.

Addison is currently a sixth-grade student at Selbyville Middle School. She was nominated for the award by Dana Lambert, who was her fifth-grade teacher at Lord Baltimore Elementary School in 2016-17.

“The Junior National Young Leaders Conference 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.
