RUDYARD - Gildford native Hali Wei Kapperud is about five weeks away from shaking hands with Montana's U.S. senators, other legislators and the president of the United States.

Kapperud, a 17-year-old  North Star High School senior, is one of two Montanans representing the state in the nation's capital during the 56th annual United States Senate Youth Program Washington Week, held March 3 to 10.

She's excited, she said, to meet the Montana senators and the president. She said she is also curious to see how things are going in D.C., considering the recent brief government shutdown.
