The CloseUp Foundation is sponsoring a national program to assist young people in grades 10 -12 to learn first-hand about the federal government in Washington, DC. Enderlin Area High School students will be attending this program June 10-15, 2012. Students attending this educational seminar in June 2012 from Enderlin Area High School are Nicole Bartholomay, Ashton Gibson, Brady Gibson, Lucas Krueger, Rebecca Nord, Cameron Olson, and Mackensie Pfaff.
Students who participate in this seminar will have the opportunity to meet senators and representatives from throughout the United States including the delegates from North Dakota. They will be visiting national memorials, monuments and museums.
The Enderlin group will have the opportunity to share these experiences with other students from North Dakota, the United States and around the world. A typical day for these young people will be from 7 am to 11 pm. Diana Fuhrman, Enderlin CloseUp Advisor, will accompany the students.
The Enderlin Area High School CloseUp group will be selling subs and later in the school year will be selling Pizza Corner pizzas to help defray costs of the trip. They will also be doing service projects for kids and contacting local organizations asking for donations as well. This is Enderlin Area High School’s 22nd year of participating in the National CloseUp program.
