London-area student chosen to represent Southeastern KY

May 17, 2017 by  

At the third annual Leadership Workshop and Awards Ceremony on April 30, Caleb Siler was chosen by the Southeastern Kentucky Council on Youth Leadership to represent the region at the annual Town Meeting on Tomorrow.

Siler was among 24 high school juniors for the area around London to attend the awards ceremony and workshop. Each of the attending students was selected as a Youth Salute Awardee. To qualify for the selection, a student needs to have a GPA of at least 3.0, be a high school junior, and have at least two leadership roles at school or in their community.

Councils that organize scholarship programs and recognition ceremonies can use postcard printing to explain the scope of their award programs.

Siler will be traveling to Washington University, in St. Louis, MO, in October, on an all-expenses paid trip to attend the Town Meeting on Tomorrow. Amber Sizemore, a junior attending Bell County High School, will also be traveling to the conference. The event is a four-day leadership program that allows students to further hone their skills while competing for scholarships.

In addition to representing Southeastern Kentucky at the conference, Siler won a $500 Excellence in Leadership Scholarship at the awards ceremony and a $1,000 renewable scholarship to the University of the Cumberlands. His activities include varsity tennis, Beta Club, National Honor Society, and Educators Rising.
