Congratulations to Philip "Jason" Syms, a seventh-grader at Brooklyn Park/Lindale Middle School, who has been selected to be a student ambassador with the People to People Program.

Jason is one of 30 county students who will be spending 22 days this summer in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, visiting families and famous sites.

The People to People Program was founded by President Eisenhower in 1956 to promote world peace and international understanding through direct contact between private citizens. In 1961, the program became a private, nonprofit organization.

Jason was chosen after submitting an application, providing letters of recommendation, filling out a questionnaire and being interviewed by the three adult delegates. Now he is busy raising $3,500 to pay for tuition.

Jason said he is "looking forward to the opportunity to see other countries as well as being a representative of Northern Anne Arundel County."
