Taos Pueblo student selected for national leadership conference

Posted

Jordan Mirabal from Taos Pueblo will join outstanding middle school students from across the United States to take part in the Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C. this summer.

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.

Mirabal was nominated to attend the forum by her eighth-grade AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) teacher, Marisol Trujillo from Taos Middle School. Jordan has been a member of AVID since sixth grade. She won second place in the 2019 Middle School Science Fair and went on to win third place at the Regional Science Fair at Highlands University. Mirabal also plays JV Softball for the Lady Tigers and participated in the 2019 Senior Softball league as well as the Taos All Stars.

"As an alumna of Envision myself, I am excited for Jordan to meet, work and collaborate with other high­ aspiring students from across the country," said Amanda Freitag Thomas, SVP for Envision, in a statement.

"Hands down, my favorite part of attending an Envision program was being with motivated students in an environment designed to help us challenge our assumptions, meet new people and grow. Creating that same learning environment is a central focus for all of our programs. At Junior National Young Leaders Conference, students build the confidence and skills needed to excel in high school, college and the workplace. They learn how to adapt to and communicate in new situations, to new challenges and with new people, which, given how rapidly the world is changing due to technology and innovation, are essential skills for success."

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.
