Saif's Successful Summer!

John F. Kennedy Middle School student Saif Khalfan participated in the prestigious Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C.  In July 2019, after being nominated by his teacher, Ms. Green in seventh grade, Saif participated in the exclusive summer program for middle school and high school students representing all fifty states and several countries. The program, which focuses on leadership development, community service, global awareness, and college preparation, provided Saif with a comprehensive and interactive learning experience that introduced him to new friends and provided strategies for becoming a more active and engaged member of the leadership community.

During the summit, Saif participated in leadership simulations, visited monuments and museums, met with Congressmen on the floor of the House of Representatives, and, as part of the My Day in Office simulation, even had the privilege of being elected President of his Leadership Focus Group! He now hopes to return next summer as an Ambassador in the Alumni program! 

Bethpage Schools congratulates Saif for his acceptance, participation, and completion of the Junior National Young Leaders Conference and look forward to contributions that he will make to our community and world!
