AUBURN – Katie St. Pierre, a student at St. Dominic Regional High School, has been selected to attend LeadAmerica’s 2005 Congressional Student Leadership Conference in Baltimore, Md./Washington, D.C.

The college-accredited invitational leadership program is for academically talented and promising young leaders. Exceptional high school students who have a record of academic achievement and extracurricular or community involvement are invited to participate from across the United States and internationally.

Students choose from several academic areas, including the government and politics, engineering, science and robotics, global business and entrepreneurship, intelligence, diplomacy and national security, junior war college, crime scene investigation, law and trial advocacy and medicine and health care.

Through briefings and discussions with national and international leaders in the fields of study, and through realistic, hands-on simulations, students have the opportunity to experience leadership in action and to learn first-hand about the complexities of decision-making in a chosen field or profession.

By engaging in special interactive workshops and activities, students will learn and develop leadership skills, including effective communication, conflict resolution, team building and time management.
