Janine DeWitt Is Off To Washington

Washington, DC – Miss Janine DeWitt, of Susquehanna, has recently been selected to participate in the National Youth Leadership Forum on Law (NYLF/LAW), from November 19 to November 24 in Washington, DC. Having demonstrated academic achievement and an interest in law and justice, DeWitt will join approximately 350 outstanding high school students from across America at the forum.

"Due to the events that took place on September 11, 2001, there may be no better time than now for students like Janine DeWitt to explore and develop a command of the US justice system," said Donna Snyder, Executive Director of NYLF. "The experience that the National Youth Leadership Forum on Law provides to these individuals allows them to be much more selective and focused in their studies and internships as they map out their route to law school and beyond. By interacting with partners at law firms, criminal defense attorneys and prosecutors, as well as professors and other experts who work with the legal profession, the process of students shaping their future starts here."

The curriculum for this program is based on actual events, which allows its participants to learn from the examples set by attorneys of law and court officials from municipal court to the US Supreme Court. The process encourages participants to develop perspective and resolve. Throughout the forum, students will examine how court cases often change the legal system.

Leah Salamon Makes Jekyll & Hyde Musical

The Society for the Performing Arts of the Media Theatre has announced that Leah Salamon, a senior at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, has been selected to perform in their production of "Jekyll and Hyde: the Musical." Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale which explores the human personality, "Jekyll and Hyde: the Musical" is gripping in its adaptation to the stage. With music by Frank Wildhorn, it takes off into a realm all its own, suggesting horror, yet promising romance and rebirth. Andy Karl, from Broadway’s Saturday Night Fever, plays the lead dual role, with Trisha Jeffrey playing Lucy. Leah successfully auditioned and won the role of Nelly in this production.

Leah is a 2000 graduate of Susquehanna Community High School and is the daughter of Roland and Lynn Salamon of Susquehanna. "Jekyll and Hyde: the Musical" plays October 2-27, with matinee and evening performances. Call (610) 566-4020 for tickets and information.
