Tampa Prep student Isabella Wu participated in the Economics for Leaders program at Tufts University. Isabella was one of 40 students from around the country who was accepted into the Foundation for Teaching Economics' Economics for Leaders program, which selects students who demonstrate excellent leadership potential.
During the week-long Economics for Leaders program, students attained an understanding of
economic reasoning principles and how to employ these concepts for successful and effective leadership.
Additionally, participants achieved a heightened awareness of the impact their decisions have on others and the responsibility that awareness imposes. Students who have attended Economics for Leaders programs in prior years have called it "the experience of a lifetime."
