Fairfield teen will meet with president in July

Enquirer Contributor

        FAIRFIELD — Dan Moss thought he was lucky in March when he met Jo Ann Davidson, Ohio's speaker of the House.

        But the Fairfield High School senior is thrilled not only that he will get to meet President Clinton in July, but talk with him when the president comes to Cincinnati for a fund-raiser at the Amberley Village home of Cincinnati at torney Stanley M. Chesley.

        “Nothing has really set in yet,” said Dan.

        Dan was supposed to meet the president during a scheduled visit to the Chesley home on March 25. But NATO air strikes on Yugoslavia canceled that meeting along with Mr. Chesley's fund-raiser. It has been rescheduled for July 23.

        Dan's work in organizing a legislative advisory group of Southwest Ohio teen-agers, reported in a March Enquirer story, piqued the interest of Mr. Chesley. Working through Fairfield Senior High School Principal Monica Mitter, Mr. Chesley is arranging the meeting.

        “I think he's a great kid. It's terrific getting education in front of the legislators,” Mr. Chesley said Tuesday. “We're still working out all the details, but we'll probably have him meet the president at the airport.”

        Dan plans on giving Mr. Clinton a Fairfield Indians baseball cap from Fairfield Senior High School's student government, of which Dan has been elected president for the coming school year. He's not sure what he'll say to Mr. Clinton.

        “This is beyond anything I'd ever dreamed of,” he said.
