Lewis chosen as a LEDA Scholar


DUBLIN — Cheyenne Lewis, a junior at West Bladen High School, has been chosen as a LEDA Scholar and will have the opportunity to spend the summer at Princeton University for leadership development.

Each year, LEDA Scholars are chosen from qualified high school juniors across the nation. These students show leadership potential but sometimes lack the exposure and support they need to attend highly selective colleges. LEDA Scholars receive leadership training, writing instruction, standardized test preparation and a year of highly personalized guidance as they navigate the application and admissions process at the most competitive colleges.

Throughout college and beyond, Scholars are offered ongoing advising, career counseling, postgraduate planning and community-building support to help them succeed and lead.

Lewis, who lives in Tar Heel, is the daughter of Lynn and Ramon Bowman.
