Why students should apply
Students who become DYLN Scholars apply their experience in the program to every facet of their lives – in academics, on athletic fields, in clubs and extracurricular activities. They understand the importance of leading by example.
“Participation in the DYLN Scholars program has given our students the confidence to be effective leaders in our school community. In the classroom, on the athletic field, or on stage, our DYLN student leaders inspire respectful interaction and a humanitarian spirit in their peers.”
– Lauren Ziady, Ph.D., Upper School Counselor at Sanford School
“DYLN students present themselves well and understand the value of appropriate communication and articulate conversation. It is my observation that DYLN participants and graduates understand the power of networking and willingly share this acquired skill with their peers. In attending the graduations, I could see that the students had become a connected cohort, with the energy and purpose of a team in the workplace- what great preparation for the future!”
– Shirley Bounds, Principal of St. Elizabeth High School
