Friday, July 11, 2014 - A Young Leader is Born

Noah Grant, a student at Anderson Middle School in Stuart, recently participated in a leadership development program offered through Envision programs.  The National Young Leaders State Conference helps young scholars build leadership skills and strategies that are critical for success in the 21st century. 

Noah is enrolled in the Medical Sciences Academy at school and is interested in a career in health care.  He was nominated by one of his teachers to attend the four-day conference based on his academic performance and leadership potential. He also received a $500 scholarship and a contribution from the Martin Health Foundation towards the $1,600 tuition. 

“We are extremely grateful to the Martin Health Foundation for making it possible for Noah to attend the conference,” said his mother, Jennifer, who is a Martin Health employee. “It was a tremendous experience for him.”

Leaders State Conference. Joining Noah are Craig Chindemi, Vice President
and Chief Philanthropic Officer of Martin Health and Jennifer Grant, Noah's mother. 

“We value and support the development of our community’s future leaders, “said Craig Chindemi, Vice President/Chief Philanthropic Officer for Martin Health Foundation, “and we are always pleased to assist our associates and their families, like Jennifer and Noah, when the opportunity arises.”

Students who attend the conference are provided with an introspective and highly personalized experience.  Each student’s leadership skills and abilities are assessed and scholars are then challenged and taught how to develop the confidence and skills they need to achieve their full leadership potential. 

“This program shows students how to get at the heart of their innate talents and skills as leaders,” said Marguerite Regan, Ph.D., the dean of academic affairs for the National Young Leaders State Conference. 

“Students gain new insights into the value of diversity, heighten their own self-awareness and form strong bonds with other young scholars who share their drive and determination.”
