Niman Mann and Daniel Rose are gearing up for a senior trip offered only to a select few. Mann, a Ravenwood High School student, and Rose, an Overton High School student, will represent Tennessee at the United States Senate Youth Program in March. The pair will join 104 students with exceptional academic performance for an intensive week-long study of the federal government and the people who lead it. Both Mann and Rose will attend meetings and briefings with President Obama, Senators and Congressional staff, a Justice of the Supreme Court, leaders of cabinet agencies, an Ambassador to the United States, and members of the national news media.
In addition to the paid trip, both students will receive a $5,000 undergraduate scholarship from the Hearst Foundations.
You can read more about these students’ impressive credentials (including neurobiology, founding non-profits, and future college plans) in this press release from the United States Senate Youth Program.
The United States Senate Youth Program has more than 5,000 alumni across the country including Senator Susan Collins, the first delegate to be elected U.S Senator; New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, the first delegate to be elected governor; and Congressman Cory Gardner, the first delegate to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
