Marly Crawford, an eighth grade student at Pass Christian Middle School, was selected to attend The Trent Lott Leadership Institute for Rising Ninth Graders at the University of Mississippi this summer. The institute was designed to develop critical thinking and leadership skills in upcoming high school freshmen with the objective to cultivate and inspire honest, compassionate, and responsive leaders. Students who complete the program will return to their high schools and initiate the new skills to other students with the hope of building a better community through leadership and service projects. The selection process, which was based on academics, character, and leadership, allowed for each school to nominate only five students.
