Two students from Oregon-Davis and from Knox schools recently attended the annual Richard G. Lugar Symposium for Tomorrow’s Leaders.

The event is hosted at the Richard G. Lugar Academy at the University of Indianapolis. The symposium brings together top high school juniors from around the state for a day to discuss pressing public issues and world events.

Lugar was the keynote speaker and took questions from students who attended the event.

Blake Hurford and Carl Schnekenburger from Oregon-Davis and Kindrick Joseph and Elijah Larsen from Knox attended an afternoon session that focused on current events.

School officials were proud of the students’ efforts and their student leadership was appreciated.
