|Grambling Student Leaders Selected to Speak Before Congress|
|By The Gramblinite -- Black College Wire|
Grambling State University Student Government Association President Christopher Harmon and Senior Class President Jared Evans have been chosen to represent GSU at the National Civic Responsibility Conference in Washington, D.C.
Students from across the country are chosen each year to participate in two days of workshops. Students are selected on the basis of academic excellence, community service, leadership capabilities, and a demonstrated interest in a career in public service.
Throughout the conference, Evans and Harmon will be introduced to current public policy issues and the organizations and people who shape them.
In addition, the top students from each region will be chosen to testify before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions. Members of this committee include Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, Chris Dodd of Connecticut, Kay Hagan of North Carolina, and John McCain of Arizona.
