CONCORD, NH — Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut today announced the selection of two New Hampshire students to participate in the 61st Annual U.S. Senate Youth Program – Morgan Casey of Bishop Brady High School in Concord and Madeline Waters of Keene High School.
They were selected by a panel of judges who evaluated the pool of top students nominated by principals throughout the state. Both students will receive a $10,000 college scholarship for undergraduate study, and they will represent the Granite State for a comprehensive public service, leadership and education experience in Washington, D.C. this coming March.
Madeline Waters, a senior at Keene High School, serves as the Student Council President at her school. She is also the Vice President of Students for Hope, the School Board student representative, and co-leader of Reading on the Road. Madeline is ranked second in her class, and her teachers refer to her as a “spunky, enthusiastic and ardent learner.” She loves history, is an avid reader and hopes to one day work in the nation’s capital.
