West St. John High School was invited to send two representatives to the Collegiate Leadership Summit on Sept. 27-29 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Lamore Boudoin and Nicholas Borne were among 40 students selected from a nationwide pool to participate in a three-day, all-expenses-paid forum at Franklin & Marshall College.

The summit focuses on the post-secondary educational experience and bolsters the attendees’ leadership potential.

Participation in the Collegiate Summit merits Borne and Boudoin a scholarship to Franklin & Marshall College, recognized as one of the Top 50 colleges in America by U.S. News and World Report. The award covers the $55,000-a-year cost of attendance at Franklin & Marshall.

The students were nominated by coach Ray Oxmann for their outstanding record of scholastic and athletic achievement.
