Member Ayden Robinson Invited to the “Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit”
Scholar-Athlete Ayden Robinson Invited to the 58th Inauguration at the Smithsonian
You may recall hearing about Ayden Robinson-Wayne this past spring when he was highlighted for his talents and his invitation to play in the Perfect Game Series Classic. Now as an honored alumnus of the Junior National Young Leaders Conference has been selected to take part in the Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit, January 12-22, 2017 in Washington, D.C. amid the excitement and ceremony surrounding the 58th Inauguration of the President and Vice President of the United States.
The attendees will be inspired by world-renowned change agents, make new friends and collaborate with other motivated students to discuss and discover 21st century solutions to the challenges their generation and our next president face.
The Summit Scholars will have early access to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and be escorted to the National Mall to witness firsthand as the President and Vice President of the United States take their public oaths and sworn into office.
The scholars will work to make a difference as Delegations for Change, working together in small-group breakout sessions. Topics will include:
- Curing the Future: Healthcare, Disease, & the World of Tomorrow
- Drones, Clones & Genomes: Technology & the Future of Humanity
- Pathways to Power: Women and Global Leadership
- Racing Extinction: Water, Wildlife, & Weather @2050
- Imagining Peace: Conflict & Compromise in a Global Age
- A Smarter Planet: Education, Innovation, & Equity
The once-in-a-lifetime experience is designed, developed and hosted by the experienced professional educators, advisors and partners who are responsible for the high-quality Envision programs they’ve already experienced.
Held at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, the Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit will also include plenty of music, games, dancing and photobooths.
Congratulations to Mathews-Dickey member Ayden on this accomplishment. One thing is for sure – the votes are in and Mr. Robinson is a real winner.
