DAHS sophomore, Isabel Larson has been accepted into the Business Emerging Leaders Program at UW- Madison. Only 20 students were accepted into the program, which begins this summer.
According to their website, the Business Emerging Leaders (BEL) Program is designed for promising students who come from diverse backgrounds and have strong academic records and demonstrated leadership skills. Program participation gives students a distinct competitive advantage when adjusting to college life, learning in classes, and applying for internship opportunities, ultimately preparing them for successful careers in business.
As part of the program Isabel will attend an all expense paid program every summer for three years, beginning the summer after tenth grade. BEL Program students who are admitted to UW–Madison and major in business are granted a full-tuition scholarship for four years of attendance.
High school social studies teacher, Brittany Brazzel encouraged Isabel to apply and provided support during the application process.
