INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Jac-Cen-Del High School junior Tracy McKittrick (pictured) is one of two Indiana students named a U.S. Senate Youth Program (USSYP) delegate in 2022.

Mc Kittrick won a $10,000 Hearst Foundation scholarship and the opportunity to engage with USSYP delegates from the other 49 states, the District of Columbia and others in a virtual learning opportunity from a week focused on all facets of government from March 5-10.

The goal of USSYP is to immerse students in the American political process, develop leadership skills, and better understand the public service.

This year, 57 students applied to the program through the Indiana Bar Foundation.

Students were required to complete an application, create a resume, write an essay, and submit a letter of recommendation from their supervisor.

Ten students were selected as finalists and had to take an exam covering government, public affairs, and history, write a second essay, and pass an interview.

Indiana’s other delegate is Nathan Mock, who is a senior at South Vermillion High School in Clinton.

“Tracy and Nathan are outstanding ambassadors for Indiana, and we are proud to have them represent our state and their school communities,” said Foundation President and CEO Charles Dunlap.

McKittrick is vice president of the Jac-Cen-Del student council, treasurer of the National Honor Society, and editor of the journalism club. She is on the academic English and Social Studies teams and is captain of the school golf team. McKittrick also served as a page for the Indiana House and Senate.

She plans to attend Indiana University, majoring in journalism and finance, and attend law school.

Tracy is the daughter of Lisa McKittrick of Batesville.
