Walden Student Named Wisconsin Senate Scholar

03/09/2017

Congratulations to Walden III High School junior Sofia Osborne Scekic who was recently named a Wisconsin Senate Scholar!  

The Senate Scholar Program is an intensive week-long educational program offered by the Wisconsin State Senate. Admission to the program is highly competitive and is limited to 33 academically exceptional high school juniors and seniors from around Wisconsin. Each Senate Scholar receives a hands-on, up-close view of the Legislature’s role in our democracy. 

In order to apply to the program, students have to undergo a rigorous selection process that includes submitting a cover letter, resume, two letters of recommendation and seek the nomination of their state Senator. Applicants must also take a test about Wisconsin history and culture and submit a 3-4 page essay on a topic related to state government.

Sofia will travel to Madison the week of March 26.
