The delegation was led by Counsul General (CG) US Consulate General Lahore Colleen Crenwelge and Public Affairs Officer (PAO) US Consulate General Lahore Michael Guinan.

The delegation also visited Lincoln Corner Sargodha to meet kids of an English summer camp and talked about science, technology, engineering and math.

They also asked children about lessons they had extracted from the movies they had watched in last 15 days.

LCS Coordinator Miss Nimra Zia briefed the delegates about the Summer School at LCS and community outreach through interactive learning sessions while also highlighted the different interactive and learning activities conducted in these sections.

The kids amused the visitors by their stunning musical performances including an English song and national song ‘Tera Pakistan Hay, Yeh Mera Pakistan Hay’.

CG Colleen Crenwelge said that it was wonderful to visit Sargodha University and meeting such a dynamic group of faculty, students and especially kids.

She said that these kids were leading Pakistan and the future was bright.

The leaders, who focus on the future, understand choices must be made, she said and added, that who practice sound judgment when dealing with people are truly the prudent leaders.

She underscored the importance of education and encouraged strong US-Pakistan relationship.

She said the camp had been promoting reading and communication skills, as well as education in science, technology, engineering and math. About 60 students are attending summer camp here at LCS while more than 500 students are attending such programmes throughout Pakistan.

Michael Guinan said that leaders had the wisdom to clarify what the future needed to look like, what actions would create success and which actions needed to be avoided.

“We all want and seek justice for ourselves and no leader will be accepted, if their behaviour and actions are dishonest,” he added.
