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.
