CHARLESTON, SC (Feb. 28)--The White House has invited Citadel Cadet David Rawlinson of Rock Hill to participate in a strategy conference on youth, drugs, and violence next week in Washington. Rawlinson was one of only one hundred students and professionals throughout the country to chosen to participate in the conference. The White House is seeking recommendations on how to better address the problems facing today's youth culture.
On Thursday, March 7, conference attendees will divide into policy groups, with each group assigned to either the President or one of his cabinet members. The groups will rotate throughout the day, allowing Cadet Rawlinson to make his own policy recommendations personally to President Clinton. The previous day, March 6, Rawlinson will attend a Presidential reception at The White House.
Cadet Rawlinson was nominated for the conference by U.S. Representative John Spratt. He spent last semester interning in Washington, D.C., for Rep. Spratt as part of the 1995 Congressional Fellowship Program.
A sophomore Political Science major, Rawlinson is an O. Ray Moore full scholarship recipient at The Citadel. He is the son of David and Regina Rawlinson of West Oak Drive in Rock Hill.
