RYE, N.Y. Lara Cohen of Blind Brook High School and Luke Murphy and Annabel Gutterman of Rye Neck High School are going to Albany. The three students have been selected for the 10th annual Students Inside Albany program, and will spend March 25-28 in Albany learning how their state government works, according to a press release by the League of Women Voters of New York State Education Foundation. They will join approximately 37 other students from across the state in hands-on activities, including interactive lectures and shadowing their representatives. These activities are designed to give students the information and resources necessary to meet their civic duties in a representative government. The local League of Women Voters chapters selected students in their areas for this competitive program based on their interests, goals and leadership abilities. The Rye, Rye Brook and Port Chester chapter selected these three students for the active role they have played in their respective communities, and will cover all costs associated with their trip. Cohen, a junior, has been a grade representative in the Blind Brook High School Congress and Senate for three years, and also serves as secretary this year.
