CHISAGO LAKES BAPTIST SCHOOL— The American Association of Christian Schools has announced that Riley Keck of Forest Lake, the son of Kraig and Laura Keck, has been granted a scholarship to attend the annual AACS Youth Legislative Training Conference in Washington D.C. to be held July 11-15.
Riley, a rising junior at Chisago Lakes Baptist School, is part of a select group of 40 students chosen from AACS member schools nationwide to attend this conference where he will be provided the valuable opportunity to learn the inner workings of our political system.
More than just a series of lectures on political theory and philosophy, this conference gives the students an opportunity to receive a Congressional briefing, participate in a mock senate, meet Senators and Congressmen, and tour historical sites in Washington, D.C., including the U. S. Capitol, the Monuments, the Pentagon and Arlington Cemetery. In addition, the students will hear the Marine Band and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
One of the oldest national voices for Christian education, AACS is celebrating its 43rd anniversary as one of the leading Christian school organizations in the country.
