Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - WEATHER - STAFF RE­PORT

SILOAM SPRINGS — Car­ley Gog­gans, 17, a se­nior at Siloam Springs High School, is one of 70 stu­dents world­wide who have been se­lected to par­tic­i­pate in this year’s Four Star Lead­er­ship with Gen­eral Tommy Franks.

The pro­gram will be held July 9-14 in Ed­mond, Okla. Four Star Lead­er­ship with Gen­eral Tommy Franks is a free sum­mer lead­er­ship pro­gram that pro­vides stu­dents with in-class in­struc­tion and men­tor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties with na­tional and in­ter­na­tional lead­ers.

Gog­gans was cho­sen due to her demon­strated lead­er­ship abil­i­ties and out­stand­ing char­ac­ter. Among her many ac­tiv­i­ties and ac­com­plish­ments, Gog­gans is a mem­ber of Na­tional Honor So­ci­ety, band and Span­ish club.

Gog­gans will travel on var­i­ous ex­cur­sions across the state where she will meet and en­gage with na­tional and in­ter­na­tional lead­ers in­clud­ing politi­cians, dig­ni­taries and star ath­letes. Gog­gans will be con­fronted with prac­ti­cal lead­er­ship and eth­i­cal sce­nar­ios and then chal­lenged to ad­dress them in­di­vid­u­ally in a per­sua­sive speech and writ­ing com­pe­ti­tion as well as col­lab­o­ra­tively in an Ethics Bowl tour­na­ment.

Gog­gans will also have the op­por­tu­nity to earn more than $15,000 in schol­ar­ships as well as gain in­tern­ships and re­ceive let­ters of rec­om­men­da­tion.
