U.S. Sen. Richard G. Lugar today announced that area high school students have been selected to attend his “Symposium for Tomorrow’s Leaders” at the University of Indianapolis on December 8. Every high school in Indiana has been invited to select two outstanding juniors to attend the all-day conference. Last year, more than 500 students, representing high schools in almost all 92 counties across the state, attended the event.

Again, this year Lugar will begin the day-long program with an address to the students on national and world affairs. The students will then participate in a choice of ten discussion groups. Some of this year’s topics include America’s new war, immigration, juvenile crime, media responsibility, election reform, and America’s role in the world. Students debate opposing views under the leadership of major state and national advocates on the subjects. Students have been encouraged to donate food items that will be collected at registration and donated to Gleaners Food Bank.

The following Waynedale area students have been selected to attend this year’s symposium:

Susanna Jackson and Ashley Slain, Elmhurst High School
