LURAY — This summer, Tallon Lee, who moved to Luray from Kodiak, Alaska in 2021, will join outstanding elementary school students from across the state to take part in a unique academic and career-oriented development experience, the National Youth Leadership Forum taking place in Washington, D.C. at Trinity Washington University.

The National Youth Leadership Forum is one of the Envision by WorldStrides family of programs that enable students to explore their interests and experience learning beyond the classroom.

Tallon J.C. Lee was nominated to attend the forum and represent Page County by his fourth grade Gifted and Talented teacher Ms. Knoll at Luray Elementary School. In addition to being on the A honor roll all four quarters at LES (receiving straight As), Tallon was also voted as Citizen of the Month by his peers on two occasions during the 2022-23 school year.

With dreams of being a surgeon, Tallon is looking forward to gaining the hands-on medical experience that the forum provides. In his free time, Tallon likes to hunt and fish, play lacrosse, soccer, and swim team, enjoys coding, and riding his bike. He has two small start-up businesses he is developing — one mowing lawns and another selling T-shirts he’s designed.

For more than 35 years, Envision by Worldstrides has empowered extraordinary students to become their best selves through programs that enable them to discover their passions, explore a career, and positively impact their world.

In 2018, Envision became part of the Worldstrides family. The largest provider of educational travel and experiences in the United States, Worldstrides works with more than 50,000 educators each year to help more than 550,000 students see the world — and themselves — in new ways.
