Congratulations to CCHS Student Ava Owen on being accepted into the FBI Academy Youth Leadership Program.
The FBI National Academy Associates, Inc. (FBINAA) hosts a week-long training event for high school students at the FBI Academy every summer called the Youth Leadership Program (YLP). Applicants are chosen by each state’s chapter based on an application, an essay on “What is Leadership”, grades and extracurricular activities, as well as an interview. One representative was chosen from Kentucky. Ava will be spending nine days at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia with other representatives from across the United States and abroad. While at the Academy, she will study leadership, ethics, character, goal setting, and many other aspects of criminal justice. She will also do daily physical training and have the opportunity to run the “Yellow Brick Road”, which is a 4.25 mile FBI obstacle course. She will also have the opportunity to visit Washington D.C, the Holocaust Museum, the Law Enforcement Memorial and Arlington Cemetery.
