Brent Lensing, a senior at Livingston High School, was nominated by his band director, Al Torres, to attend the Presidential Inaugural Leadership Summit as a delegate.
The Summit was held during the inauguration of President Donald Trump in Washington D.C.
Students attending the summit were divided into groups of six to discuss topics that will face the next president of the United States. They are working together toward national and global solutions.
While attending the Summit, students will have the opportunity to meet General Colin Powell, all-time leading scorer in international soccer history Abby Wambach, as well as other notable politicians and journalists.
The Summit is designed to empower next generation of leaders by offering them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness history and be inspired by world-renowned speakers. They will also celebrate the inauguration, as well as engage, participate, and be heard in a Summit Showcase that allows the top three student groups to be recognized with awards and scholarships.
Earlier in the week, Lensing said he was looking forward to attending a presidential gala on Saturday at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, where Trump will make an appearance.
