â€œEarlier this year the Young Democrats of America held their bi-annual convention in which nearly 2000 members across the nation and abroad convened in Chicago. Local student Sania Rahim was named the National Chair of the Young Democrats of America High School Caucus in the highly contested race for the High School Caucus Executive Board. Miss Rahim is the third National Chair to be elected and the first Muslim-American woman to serve on the Executive Committee of the organization.
â€œAs always, I am very impressed with your dedications to the Democratic Partyâ€ said Congressman Nick Joe Rahall of Rahimâ€™s campaign and recent election. â€œYour long list of accomplishments is a tribute to your excellent work ethic and determinationâ€.
â€œBecause of your involvement in the Young Democrats organization, you are an outstanding leader ready to build a brighter tomorrow for both our great nation and mountain stateâ€, says Governor Manchin of Rahim. â€œYou have certainly cast a positive light upon Woodrow Wilson High School and all of West Virginiaâ€.
