Melton participates in Washington, D.C., program
The Prince Edward County Board of Supervisors recognized Fuqua School sophomore Hunter Melton on Tuesday night during the board’s regular September meeting. As cited in the board meeting packet, Melton was chosen to participate in a unique program in Washington, D.C., this past summer. He was able to join a group of other students on the campus of The George Washington University for a two-week college-like experience studying constitutional law and ethics. The program, sponsored by The New York Times, employed professors from both George Washington and Georgetown universities to lead an intense course utilizing all the exceptional resources and contacts the District of Columbia has to offer.
