Congratulations to the Naples Council on World Affairs.
The organization which thinks globally also acts locally when it comes to promoting and preparing the leaders of tomorrow.
The council steps forward with a truly amazing scholarship program for 16 of today's high school juniors in Collier County.
Seven of them have earned places at Georgetown University this summer studying international relations or national security, including lectures from top national experts in their fields.
Nine more juniors will be afforded incredible opportunities to study overseas and stay with families in areas as far away as Turkey, Mongolia, Japan, Tanzania, Morocco and Italy.
Oh yes. Don't forget Mexico, Costa Rica and Spain.
What a wonderful contribution to our community — locally and globally.
Now, does that inspire any other organizations to follow suit?
