Patch Blogger Heads to Inauguration

Deerfield High School sophomore will participate in five-day Presidential Inaugural Leadership Conference.

Do you want an up close and personal view of President Barack Obama’s inauguration Monday as well as some of the events leading up to it?

Deerfield High School sophomore and new Patch blogger Lily Zacharias leaves for the Presidential Inaugural Leadership Conference Saturday and will be sending reports back to the Chicago suburbs on her blog.

Patch will publish her blogs under Local Voices each time she submits them. They will be the impressions of a North Shore teenager at a major historic event.

The Presidential Inaugural Leadership Conference is put on by the Congressional Youth Leadership Council. Zacharias first began attending the organization’s events as a sixth grader and has been going back ever since.

Patch will publish a story Monday about Zacharias’s interest in politics and government as well as some of her experiences leading to this event.

Congratulations Lily! Regardless of your political leanings, it's simply super that a young person has taken an interest in government. Sadly, it's something many adults have failed to do. Best to you!
