HARRISBURG, Oct. 18, 2013 – State Sen. John Blake today said he is encouraging dedicated high school seniors to apply to become student ambassadors.
Blake’s Student Ambassador Program is an opportunity for one senior from each of the 17 high schools in the 22nd Senatorial District to learn about citizenship, public service and state lawmaking.
“This program offers a unique opportunity for students who may have an interest in public service and who want to make a positive difference in their communities,” the senator said. “I am looking forward to engaging serious young women and men who are interested in the hard work of government and in offering them an insider’s view of the lawmaking process.”
Students from Abington Heights, Carbondale, Dunmore, Forest City, Holy Cross, Lackawanna Trail, Lakeland, Mid Valley, North Pocono, Old Forge, Pittston Area, Pocono Mountain, Riverside, Scranton, Scranton Prep, Valley View and West Scranton are eligible to apply for Sen. Blake’s Student Ambassador Program.
Applications for the program are available in each school’s guidance office.
Between December and May, student ambassadors will participate in a schedule of events and presentations with the senator and his staff — including time at the State Capitol — and all will compete for college scholarship assistance through the completion of a critical thinking project and presentation.
