Tracy Cirone, Tikva Committee member, attended the Loudoun International Youth Leadership Summit at Potomac Falls High School and reported the following:

I wanted to let you know that I attended the Loudoun International Youth Leadership Summit at Potomac Falls HS yesterday. What a great event! This year's week long summit theme is - connect the pieces, find the harmony, and create the big picture.

There were 98 international student delegates representing 21 countries. The Tikva Grant was mentioned in the opening remarks. The program included performances from PFSH students (guitar, dance, band, chamber choir, and improv comedy club) in addition to remarks by PFHS student global ambassadors. The inspiring keynote speaker was Ms. Paula Williams Madison. If you ever have the opportunity to hear Ms. Madison speak, do so (click here for more information).

I am happy that the seed money for the first LIYLS come from a Multi-Cultural Grant and that the Tikva Fund continues to support this worthy endeavor.
