Albany High sophomore tapped for prestigious conference
ALBANY, N.Y. (March 2, 2018) -- The
Albany County League of Women Voters has selected Albany High School
sophomore Faith O’Toole to represent the county at a statewide "Students
Inside Albany" conference to be held at the Capitol in May.
An Albany High honor student by day, O’Toole also is studying American
Sign Language at Hudson Valley Community College. She is the only
student from Albany County selected to participate in the League of
Women Voters' conference.
O’Toole became intrigued by state and national politics last fall after
spending a week in Washington, D.C. at a national “No Place for Hate”
conference sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League.
The Students Inside Albany conference is designed to increase students’
awareness of their responsibility in representative government, and to
educate them about the process by which citizens can participate in the
policy-making arena in our state government.
Congratulations to O’Toole on earning this wonderful opportunity to
expand her knowledge of and interest in our civic process!
