NORMAN — The Oklahoma City musical duo Miss Brown to You, featuring Mary Reynolds and Louise Goldberg, will present a benefit concert from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday to benefit a Norman student’s participation in the Young Democrats National High School Leadership Academy.

The concert will be held at Norman Music Institute, 2795 Broce Drive in Norman. A suggested donation of $15 will help cover the cost of registration and travel expenses for Norman High School junior Amanda Wheelock to attend the Leadership Academy. Desserts and refreshments will be served.

Wheelock is one of 50 students nationwide selected to attend the 2014 Academy. The program gives politically active students an in-depth look into elections, the media, campaign finance, grassroots organizing, the legislative process, careers in politics and more. Wheelock is involved in Young Democrats at her school and at the state level. She is volunteering this summer as an intern for Sen. John Sparks of Norman.

For information, call Brenda Wheelock at 620-1305.
