2017 Jun 5
Kaitlyn Krejci, a junior at The University of Alabama from St. Louis, has been chosen to participate in the Henry Clay Center for Statesmanship National Student Congress.
The Henry Clay Center is an innovative non-profit dedicated to educating a new generation of leaders in negotiation, dialogue and compromise.
The Student Congress program is free of cost (travel and lodging included) to those selected from the competitive application process. Current college juniors and high school juniors with records of exceptional academic and extracurricular achievement were chosen for this once-in-a-lifetime academic and personal development course. The college program will be June 11 to June 17.
During that week, participants will have the opportunity to meet with lawmakers, academics, journalists, and civic leaders to discuss the practical importance of compromise and constructive engagement and dialogue to resolve conflict and competing interests in a democracy.
