U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and David Perdue, R-Ga., have congratulated four Georgia high school students who were selected as delegates or alternates to the 57th annual United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP), which will be held March 2 through 9, 2019, in Washington, D.C.
Patrick Chappel of Columbus, Ga., and Clarke Peoples of Atlanta, have been chosen as delegates in a very competitive selection process to be part of the group of 104 student delegates who will attend the program’s “Washington Week.” Each delegate will also receive a $10,000 college scholarship for undergraduate study.
Chosen as alternates to the 2019 program were Nicklaus Proctor, of Calhoun, Ga., who attends Sonoraville High School, and Brandon Wilson of Lithia Springs, Ga., who attends Lithia Springs High School.
The chief educational officer in each state selects the delegates after nomination by teachers and principals. This year’s Georgia delegates were designated by Richard Woods, Georgia’s state superintendent of schools.
