Eric Blem, Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School junior, has received a scholarship to attend the Honeywell Scholars at Presidential Classroom 2008, Science, Technology and Public Policy Program in Washington D.C., March 2-8. The Presidential Classroom’s mission is to provide the highest quality civic education programs for outstanding high school students, using Washington, D.C. as a classroom.
Students work with their peers on a group project throughout the week, applying new skills and ideas immediately after learning them. They also have the opportunity to earn college credit through the University of Virginia for their week at Presidential Classroom. Students graduate from Presidential Classroom with refined leadership skills and deeper understanding of politics; benefits that enhance their educational and career aspirations.
According to Jackie Bradley, LCM High School counselor, “This is a wonderful honor and privilege to be invited to participate in this program and to visit our nation’s capitol.  We are delighted to have young men of Eric’s caliber on our high school campus.”
