Four Maryland high school students will be representing the state in a celebration of youth and youth programs in Washington this month.
Designated as Youth Ambassadors, the four young people will join representatives from other states for a youth leadership conference, meetings with congressional representatives and various tours of the Capital. The events are part of a national celebration of young people that will end with National Children's Day Oct. 14.
Maryland's ambassadors are: Sherrie Gibbs of Anne Arundel County; Stephanie Wandenberg of Baltimore County; Dante Brewster of Montgomery County and Andrew Nestor of Washington County. They were selected because of the youth-help programs they are involved in.
