Campbell selected as delegate for U.S. Youth Senate

Kyle Campbell (CONTRIBUTED)

MADISON, NEW HOPE — Two young men from Madison County will represent the state as Alabama’s delegates to the 51st annual United States Senate Youth Program.

Kyle Campbell of Bob Jones High School and Peyton Hicks of New Hope High School will travel to Washington D.C. on March 9 for the weeklong experience.

Senators Richard C. Shelby and Jeff Sessions announced that Campbell and Hicks were chosen as delegates from across the state for the program’s “Washington Week.” Campbell and Hicks will meet U.S. Congressmen and President Barack Obama.

The United States Senate Youth Program was created in 1962. In addition to the program week, the Hearst Foundation provides all 104 student delegates with a $5,000 undergraduate college scholarship with encouragement to continue coursework in government, history and public affairs.

At Bob Jones, Campbell serves as president of both the Young Politicians organization and debate team. He rated as a state finalist in public speaking. He is a member of the National Honor Society. Kyle’s parents are Frederick and Debra Campbell.

After graduating from Bob Jones, Kyle plans to enter Auburn University this fall. “I haven’t decided on a major yet, but I am in the AU College of Business and will likely follow a pre-law tract,” he said. Kyle wants to enter politics and aspires to hold a senate seat.

Hicks is vice president of New Hope’s senior class. He serves as president of Future Business Leaders of America and vice president of the National Honor Society. Last summer, he represented New Hope at Alabama Boy’s State.

Dr. Thomas R. Bice, state superintendent of education, selected Campbell and Hicks as delegates. They will attend briefings with senators and congressional staff, President Obama, a Supreme Court justice and an ambassador, cabinet leaders and national media correspondents.

In addition, the students will tour national monuments, museums and lodge at the historic Mayflower Hotel in downtown Washington.
