RSF resident Elizabeth Liang, an eighth grade student at The Bishop’s School, has been nominated to attend the Middle School Presidential Inaugural Conference in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 21. This conference is held every four years in conjunction with the formal inauguration of the President and Vice President of the United States. Liang is the daughter of Dave Z. Liang of Rancho Santa Fe and Roz M. Liang of La Jolla.
The middle school inaugural scholars have a unique and extraordinary opportunity to explore the presidency and the presidential campaigns, and take part in the excitement and celebration of America’s 57th Presidential Inauguration. Keynote Speakers of 2013 Middle School Presidential Inaugural Conference are Barbara Pierce Bush, Jenna Hager and Norah O’Donnell, the Chief White House Correspondent for CBS News.
Liang was invited to attend the conference as a 2010 alumna of the National Youth Leaders Conference. She was nominated by the Roger Rowe School of Rancho Santa Fe where she was a student through the fifth grade.
Liang has been a Bishop’s student since the sixth grade. Liang is actively involved in the school’s Community Service Program and has volunteered at the Karen’s Refugee Center with other Bishop’s students. She is also involved with the Hope Leadership Foundation, San Diego.
“I was really excited. Ms. Carol Barry, head of middle school at Bishop’s, told me to take a lot of pictures to share when I get back. I’m grateful because it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Liang.
