CHS student bound for DC

February 9, 2014

CUMBERLAND — Samuel Ackerman, a Cumberland High School senior, is one of two Rhode Island students chosen to spend a week in Washington D.C. next month to participate in the prestigious United States Senate Youth Program.

Ackerman will join Reilly McGreen of Wakefield and 102 youngsters from the other states, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education Activity in the nation’s capitol for a program whose goal is “to increase young Americans’ understanding of the interrelationships of the three branches of government, the caliber and responsibilities of federally elected and appointed officials, and the vital importance of democratic decision making not only for America but for people around the world.”

Full story appears on page A1 of Monday's Call and Monday's Times.
