at prestigious conference at George Mason University
Jessie Palmer, a sophomore at Franklin High School, has been nominated to represent North Carolina as a National Youth Correspondent to the 2012 Washington Journalism and Media Conference at George Mason University.
Palmer has been awarded the opportunity to join a select group of 250 students from across the country to participate in an intensive week-long study of journalism and media. Palmer was chosen based on academic accomplishments and a demonstrated interest and excellence in journalism and media studies.
The student submitted an essay about the Arnold amendment, a proposed Constitutional amendment that would allow naturalized citizens to become President of the United States. Presently, only native born Americans can legally run for the position of Commander in Chief.
