LIVERMORE – Brittney Packard, a student at Livermore Falls Middle School, has been accepted into the People to People World Leadership Forum. Packard will join a group of students in Washington, D.C., March 26 to April 1, to earn high school credit while studying leadership and exploring some of the United States’ prominent monuments and institutions.

From Capitol Hill to the Smithsonian Institute, and from Colonial Williamsburg to the National Museum of American History, Packard will examine the characteristics of American leadership during times of national challenge and prosperity.

Forum delegates will also participate in small-group discussions and exercises to experience first-hand how successful leaders develop strategies, make decisions, build consensus and foster change.

Packard was nominated and accepted for the honor based on outstanding scholastic merit, civic involvement and leadership potential.

The program is coordinated by People to People Student Ambassador Programs to fulfill the vision Dwight D. Eisenhower had for fostering world citizenship when he founded People to People during his presidency in 1956.

Packard is the daughter of Steve and Shannon Packard of Livermore. She plays the saxophone and is involved in cheerleading, volleyball and the yearbook committee.
