Dickmeyer will meet senators, visit the Virginia District Court and will participate in a service project. She is the only DODDS student attending the conference.

She is the daughter of Gary and Claire Dickmeyer. Throughout the 2003-2004 school year, she maintained at 4.0 grade point average and served as junior class president. She is attending the conference on a full scholarship based on her leadership roles and academic performance.
