One of our top volunteers, MaKayla Reed, has been nominated to go to the National Student Leadership Conference's 10 day program on "U.S. Policy & Politics." This program allows high school students with academic achievements and leadership potential to work in a field that interests them for ten days and experience it first hand. The "U.S. Policy & Politics" program will include a Presidential Campaign Simulation, U.S. Senate Simulation, visits to Capitol Hill, the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Department of State, Historic D.C. Monuments, The Smithsonian Institution, and Mount Vernon.
With this program, there is a cost of tuition, housing and travel. In total MaKayla will need to raise about $3,500 by the end of April to attend this program in July.
MaKayla has been a terrific asset to our Democratic committees. She worked tirelessly on Campaign '08 in Waldo County. Since transferring to Ellsworth High School last fall, she has organized student activism for No on One as well as helping with phone banks, rallies and other activities to support Health Care reform. She's engaged her peers and inspired older volunteers with her dedication and enthusiasm. Now it's our turn- let's help her get to DC!
