PARMA, Ohio - Daniel Regan, Parma Senior High School student, was selected as a delegate to the 51st annual United States Senate Youth Program to be held March 9 to 16 in Washington D.C.
Regan will be part of a group of 104 student delegates, two from each state, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity, who will attend the program's 51st annual Washington Week.
Students will learn and see first-hand the interrelationships of the three branches of government, the responsibilities of federally elected and appointed officials and how decision making affects the United States and the world.
He hopes to attend the U.S. Naval Academy to study political science.
After fulfilling his military duty, Daniel looks to pursue a career in public service.
"By going to D.C. I really hope to bring back lessons and experiences and apply them to issues and problems in the local community," said Regan. "While there, I will be blessed with the opportunity to speak and hear from the president, congressman, justices, military leaders and many government leaders of our nation."
All student delegates will receive a $5,000 undergraduate college scholarship from The Hearst Foundations. Each student is encouraged to continue coursework in government, history and public affairs.
