Two AR High School Students Selected for U.S. Senate Youth Program

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Two Arkansas high school students have been selected to receive hands-on experience at the nation's Capitol in the trip of a lifetime...

Shreya Majagi, a student at Rogers High School, and Robert Parker, a student at Southside High School in Fort Smith, were both selected to be a part of the 55th annual U.S. Senate Youth Program in Washington, D.C.

These two students were hand-picked to travel to Washington D.C. to represent Arkansas in the United States Senate Youth Program from March 4-11.

Majagi said the highlight leading up to this trip was hearing personally from Arkansas Senators Cotton and Boozman.

"I hope I learn how to make more changes, not only in our community, but in our entire state, and maybe even the whole world," Majagi said.  

Majagi and Parker will also each receive a $10,000 college scholarship provided by The Hearst Foundation.

Two kids from each state and the District of Columbia were picked to attend the week-long study of the federal government. The students will attend meetings and briefings with senators, members of the House of Representatives, Congressional staff, the president, a justice of the Supreme Court and more.
