Junior Robert Hadlock Attends NYLF Engineering and Technology Envision Program

CHS junior Robert Hadlock attended the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF): Engineering and Technology, an Envision program, at Georgia Tech. The eight-day, intensive program challenged scholars to become leaders of engineering and technology innovation in the 21st century.

Many of the students who attend the conference are nominated by teachers and guidance counselors based on their leadership potential and interest in engineering and technology fields. Hadlock was nominated by CHS faculty member, Judy Chapoy. ÒRobert is an intelligent student with exceptional leadership qualities,Ó said Chapoy. ÒHe is polite, creative, positive, humble and most of all, a God fearing young man. I felt he had the necessary qualities to excel in this program and thrive with whatever is asked of him.Ó

At NYLF Engineering & Technology, students had the opportunity to explore college and career opportunities and get firsthand experience putting applied knowledge to the test by participating in the programÕs interactive curriculum. Students explored emerging fields such as sustainable design, 3-D modeling, web and game development, robotics, electrical engineering and much more.
