Falls Church resident D’Michael Thompson is among 70 students across the globe who were recently selected to participate in the Four Star Leadership program, which will take place from July 9-15 in Hobart, Okla. The Four Star Leadership program with General Tommy Franks is a free program that provides students with both classroom and one-on-one experiences with respected leaders.
Thompson, a student at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science, was chosen due to his demonstrated leadership abilities and outstanding character. During the program, Thompson will be hosted on the Oklahoma Christian University campus and travel on various excursions across the state. On his travels, Thompson will meet and engage with national and international leaders, including politicians, dignitaries and star athletes.
In addition, Thompson will be confronted with practical leadership and ethical scenarios and then challenged to address them individually in a persuasive speech and writing competition as well as collaboratively in an Ethics Bowl tournament.
Thompson will also have a chance to earn more than $15,000 in scholarships as well as gain internships and receive letters of recommendation. For more information, visit FourStarLeader.com or call 580-726-5900.
