PCHS news: Bradley to attend summer STEM program


Tuesday, May 29, 2018

J.C. Bradley of Hertford will join other middle school students from across the nation this summer to take part in a unique academic and career-oriented development experience, the National Youth Leadership Forum: Explore STEM, at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. 

NYLF Explore STEM is one of the Envision family of programs (www.envisionexperience.com) that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom. 

He was nominated to attend the forum by his 5th grade teacher at Hertford Grammar School. In addition to participating in the school band, he is also passionate about sports and plays baseball on local town teams. JC also enjoys playing piano, and is an active scout of Troop 162 in Elizabeth City.

With dreams of attending the U.S. Naval Academy and a career in the Navy, he is looking forward to gaining personal development, exploring life and career skills that the forum provides. 

“NYLF Explore STEM is a great opportunity for high-achieving scholars to get outside the classroom and see, through hands-on interactive learning, how to innovate and think creatively,” said Andrew Potter, the Chief Academic Officer for Envision. “These students, who have already proven themselves academically, will be challenged to work on real-world, student-created projects to bring their studies and career interests to life.” 

Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship, and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
