Three students of St. Louis Girls Grammar School, Akure, Ondo State have been nominated for the 2023 Pan Africa Youth Leadership Program (PAYLP) scheduled to hold in the United States of America this year.
The students are: Damilola Janet Akadiri, Oluwakemisola Favour Awoyode and Faith Mercy Omowumi.
They are among the nine students recommended to the US Embassy by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology as a result of their outstanding performances at the 2022 SS 2 Examinations.
The nine nominated students were subsequently screened by the US Embassy where the best three students emerged.
This high-profile leadership training program is fully funded by the American Government for high school students and adult mentors from selected African countries to exchange experiences with their American peers.
The training is expected to run for a period of three weeks after which the students will return to the country and share their experience and action plans with their home communities.
