OUR STORIES

LISBETH

Lisbeth is a senior at Woodrow Wilson High School, and has been in the FLOC Scholars program since the beginning of her junior year. This fall she will be a freshman at George Mason University, her top choice, where she plans to major in Government and International Politics.

NICHOLAS

At fourteen years old, Nicholas has already been with the FLOC Scholars Program for about two years. One of his favorite times at FLOC was a summer zoology program that took students on a field trip to the Smithsonian National Zoo, which he brought up and seemed to remember enjoying quite a bit.

BREANA

As a sixth grader at Charles Town Middle School, Breana has always enjoyed attending our Leaders In Action program. She is an energetic girl; continually answering our questions, helping other students, and participating in every activity. Breana joined Leaders In Action because she “has always wanted to be a leader.”
