American Legion Girls State a success

Christine Ritger
American Legion Auxiliary Capitol Unit 4


Recently the American Legion Auxiliary Capitol Unit 4 held their annual Girls State Tea at the Governors Mansion.

Proceeds from the Tea benefit Girls State delegates from Carson, Dayton and Douglas High Schools. This year we selected 12 delegates who were interviewed and selected based on leadership qualities both in school and in our communities.

Girls State is an Americanism study program, and delegates will be given information and gain exposure in the affairs of government that will increase their interest and usefulness as citizens. We would like to thank our generous donors and supporters who helped make this event successful:
