Reservoir High School student Mikal Walcott, one of the outstanding RHS student leaders, along with 11 other students from Howard County, was selected to attend a special conference at the White House, where they participated in a discussion about life behind the scenes with the president and his family.
White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and five of his predecessors attended the conference, which was hosted by the White House and Discovery Education. Mikal and the rest of the Howard County contingent were joined by student leaders from Prince George's County, Prince William County and Philadelphia. Kudos.
