Molloy Alumni Service Award winner is Michael Sundermeyer. Senator Daschle has served as both the Majority and Minority leader of the United States Senate, and Mr. Sundermeyer serves as the Executive Director of the United States Senate Youth Alumni Association. The Rosalie Wynn Hearst Public Service Award recognizes exceptional service on the national stage, and the James T. Molloy Alumni Service Award recognizes exemplary accomplishments of individuals who have had direct involvement in the Senate Youth Program.

Annual Events Registration Open!

Join us at the iconic Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C., for an exciting day of events on Saturday, March 2, 2019! The day kicks off with our annual planning meeting at noon, continues with the career mentoring tables for the 2019 Senate Youth Program in the afternoon, and transitions to our annual Reception and Dinner at 6:30. The dinner includes the presentation of the Rosalie Wynn Hearst Distinguished Public Service Award and the James T. Molloy Alumni Service Award. Registration for all events is now open via our secure registration page. We hope to see you at the Mayflower on March 2!

Dinner Sponsorship Opportunities

New this year, the Alumni Association is providing an option to sponsor a young alum's dinner as part of our event registration form. By selecting one or more Young Alumni Sponsorhip packages at $65.00 each, your donation will be matched to a deserving alum to offset their Saturday evening reception and dinner expense.

If you are an alumnus or alumna from program years 2013 through 2018 seeking financial assistance for the dinner event, please let us know via our special request form by end of day on Sunday, February 3, 2019. All requests will be kept confidential.
