Congratulations to Lincoln County High School senior William "Aiden" McCloud who is one of six finalists from across the state for the merit-based and highly competitive 2021-2022 U.S. Senate Youth Program. Aiden will be competing against five other finalists to be one of two USSYP delegates to represent the state. We wish Aiden luck as he competes for one of two $10,000 undergraduate college scholarships along with a week-long, intensive education and leadership program that will take place from March 5-10, 2022, known as Washington Week. The six state finalists will be interviewed on November 22 and two delegates will be announced in late December.
