Giselle Graham of Wellington, a senior at the Dreyfoos School of the Arts this upcoming year, was selected to participate in the Economics for Leaders program conducted at Yale University from June 30 to July 7.
Graham is one of 50 students from around the country accepted into the Foundation for Teaching Economics’ New Haven Economics for Leaders program. All of the students have demonstrated excellent leadership potential.
During the week-long program, students attain an understanding of economic reasoning principles and how to employ these concepts for successful and effective leadership.
Also, participants achieve a heightened awareness of the impact their decisions have on others and the responsibility that awareness imposes.
