HIGHLAND HIGH JUNIOR ATTENDS SECURITY FORUM.

Byline: Daily News

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Highland High School junior Bryan Unbangluang attended the National Youth Leadership Forum on Defense, Intelligence and Diplomacy from Oct. 16 through 21 in Washington, D.C.

Having demonstrated academic achievement and an interest in a career related to national security, Unbangluang joined more than 350 outstanding high school juniors and seniors from across America at the conference. Students learned firsthand about national security, diplomacy and global defense systems.

``This group of young hopefuls was in our nation's capital during a critical time when global leaders were banding together to oppose terrorism,`` said Donna Weldin, executive of the NYLF. ``Experiencing the pace, decision making and urgency of Washington, D.C., through interaction with some of our country's most qualified national security leaders will help shape these students' future plans.'' Students visited military installations and government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of State, the Marine Corps Combat Development Command at Quantico, the U.S. Naval Academy, the War Gaming and Simulation Center, the Foreign Service Institute, and the National Infrastructure Protection Center, among others. NYLF/DID culminated in a student-run simulation of international crises involving the Caucasus region in Central Asia, where students assumed roles in making decisions to resolve a fictional global situation.
