W&M students featured in NPR presidential election story| June 26, 2008
Two William and Mary students were featured on National Public Radio Tuesday night as part of a story discussing how the age of voters and candidates will play a role in the upcoming presidential election.
Senior Jonna Knappenberger and sophomore Matthew Reges were among a group of College students from Virginia who were interviewed for a story on NPR's program "All Things Considered." In the story, NPR Senior National Correspondent Linda Wertheimer interviewed a number of voters of all ages in Virginia. This included a group of college students, including Knappenberger and Reges , taking part in the College Leaders Program this summer at UVA's Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership in Charlottesville. In addition to W&M, the program also interviewed Virginia students attending Duke, UVA and Morehouse College in Atlanta, as well as senior citizens in the Charlottesville area.
