Northbrook High student heads to Washington, D.C.

Isaiah Rodriguez, an 11th-grade Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History student at Northbrook High School has been invited to attend the Bill of Rights Institute’s 2013 Constitutional Academy in Washington, D.C., this summer.

The Bill of Rights Institute offers free teaching materials and lesson plans about the Bill of Rights to teachers in grades kindergarten through 12th grade. To apply for the weeklong summer academy, Isaiah had to write a winning essay.

His AP U.S. History instructor is Nancy Jackson. Isaiah won a scholarship to cover his expenses, but he must still pay for round trip transportation between Houston and Washington, D.C.
