Part of an after school program fifth grader Katie Parra works on her algebra homework.  Katie has been nominated to attend the Junior National Young Leaders Conference in June in Washington, D.C. by her teacher Mrs. Rachael Hengstebeck. Hengstebeck nominated Parra because of her hard work and achievements and leadership among her peers that she has already expressed. The conference will teach the students how to take more of a leadership role, a higher achiever and then take the students to monuments and museums.  Parra is excited about the opportunity and the chance to see a city she had never been to.  Photographed on May 20,  2009.  Kelli Stanko/ Special to the Daily News
