Alston Georges '22 Named 2018 Young Cultural Ambassador
Congratulations to Indian Creek freshman Alston Georges who was chosen to serve as a 2018 Young Cultural Ambassador through the American Turkish Association of Washington, DC. Alston was one of fifteen high school students from DC, Maryland, and Virginia to achieve this honor. As a representative for Indian Creek School, Alston will work with other awardees to build cross-cultural bridges and sharpen leadership skills through several educational and networking opportunities. He will have the opportunity to visit and meet with a member of Congress, attend a session on Capitol Hill, and tour the Turkish Embassy, among other activities and opportunities.
Alston was awarded a certificate of appreciation at the annual DC Turkish Festival last Sunday, September 30 at Freedom Plaza. At the festival, Alston will be volunteeringvolunteered with other young ambassadors in the children’s tent and in the Turkish coffee/tea tent, where he read tea leaves, a Turkish tradition since the 16th Century. Congratulations to Alston on this incredible honor.
