SSI Banquet 2013

We had the privilege of attending the Student Statesmanship Institute
annual banquet this past Thursday!

Joseph and Anna, along with eleven other students, received the
John Quincy Adams award for completing the Ambassador League!

The Ambassador League award has been described as a
political version of the Eagle Scout award.
Participants have 36 assignments to complete such as job shadowing,
volunteer work, book reports, and Biblical word studies.

If a student finishes all 36 assignments, they receive the John Quincy Adams award!

Jonathan, Grace, and Melody have all completed the Ambassador League as well.
Five down, five more to go!

Congrats to everyone, and to SSI for putting together another wonderful banquet!

"Do you see a man skilled in his work?
He will stand before kings;
He will not stand before obscure men."
~Proverbs 22:29
