Chandler Student Lands Spot at the Final Presidential Debate

Chandler student headed to the final Presidential debate

You may see a familiar face at the upcoming Presidential debate in Las Vegas on October 19. 

Zhengdong Wang from Hamilton High School is just one of two students invited to attend but he wasn’t chosen at random. His essay submission about ways to improve the effectiveness of government won PBS Education’s 50 For 50 Contest. Jade Thomas, an eighth grader from Indianapolis’ St. Richard’s Episcopal School, also landed a spot with her submission that detailed ways to close the wage gap by supporting single mothers.
