Dubuque Senior Student One of Two Iowans Selected for U.S. Senate Youth Program

The United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) recently announced that Dubuque Senior High School senior Jillian Manternach was one of two Iowans selected to join Senator Charles Grassley and Senator Joni K. Ernst in representing Iowa during the 59th annual USSYP Washington Week from March 14-17, 2021. Alexander Drahos, a senior from Linn-Mar, was also selected to represent the state in the program.

Manternach and Drahos were selected from among the state’s top student leaders to be part of the 104 national student delegation, who will each also receive a $10,000 college scholarship for undergraduate study.

Due to the pandemic, the 2021 program will break ground as the first-ever fully virtual Washington Week, and is designed to be a highly interactive and exciting education and leadership forum for the nation’s most outstanding student leaders.
