The Rosenmeier Center for State and Local Government at Central Lakes College recently provided $1,000 in funding to send four of the nine CLC students attending the Minnesota Student Leadership Summit in the Twin Cities.
The funding provided for attendance at workshops, travel and lodging. Student Senate budget paid for the other students attending.
Attending the conference were Brainerd campus Student Senate President Nic Dehning of Deerwood, a sophomore majoring in psychology; Senate Vice President Adam Bybee of Brainerd, a freshman law enforcement student; Senate Secretary Mindy Finlay of Brainerd, a freshman; and international student leader Raoni Marinho from Brazil.
Rosenmeier Center Executive Director Larry M. Kellerman said funding student leadership opportunities reflects the mission statement of the organization, which is to educate and encourage participation of citizens in effective government and the political process.
