Chandler, QC teens earn leadership scholarships


Two local teens were among the 67 students from around the world who participated in this year’s Four Star Leadership program in Oklahoma. 

Amanda Wolford, a Chandler resident and Hamilton High School senior, and Abigail Cramer, a Queen Creek resident who is a senior at Higley High, each earned a $2,000 scholarship during the program as a member of the first place team in the ethics competition.

Four Star Leadership is a week-long program for the top high school students from around the world to learn leadership techniques and skills from frontrunners and influential leaders in various fields. 

Program curriculum is designed around the four core principles that led Gen. Tommy Franks (Ret.) through his 38-year military career: character, common vision, communication and caring. 

The opportunity is valued at more than $4,000 per student and is offered at no cost to selected students, including expenses, travel and programming. 

“We are honored to assist the world’s brightest high school students with leadership capabilities and confidence as they make important steps toward their collegiate careers,” said Franks. “We are confident that these awards are just the first step in a long journey of future triumphs for these leaders of tomorrow.”  

Since 2008, Four Star Leadership has welcomed more than 841 U.S. high school students from 46 different states and 57 international students.
