Transylvania students visit nation’s capital for Power Shift 2009

Forty-eight Transylvania students joined more than 10,000 other student leaders from around the country in Washington, D.C., in late February for Power Shift 2009, a massive lobbying effort aimed at convincing the President and Congress to pass a bold climate and energy policy that prioritizes renewable energy, green job creation, and an aggressive cap on carbon emissions.

Among the Transy delegation was senior Marcie Smith, who was a keynote speaker at the event, testified before the House Select Committee for Energy Independence and Global Warming, and was interviewed on CNN. “The youth of America have the chance to work with our leadership to build a new green economy,” she said.
