Jorja Warembourg, Cady Eaton and McKayla Eaton of Pinedale

High School have been selected to attend the 77th session of American Legion

Auxiliary Wyoming Girls State on the campus of Laramie County Community

College in Cheyenne, June 9 through June 15.

American Legion Auxiliary Girls State was established in 1941 and is an annual

program designed as a practical experience in self-government, based on Wyoming

State Government. Wyoming Girls State was not held in 1944 and 1945 due to

World War II. Girls State is non-partisan and non-political in that no existing party

is promoted.

The program emphasizes the importance of government in modern life and educates

young women in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American

Citizenship. It awakens a sincere conviction that a well-informed, intelligent,

participating citizenry is vital to protect and preserve our American institutions and

democracy. These goals are achieved by actual participation in a simulation of the

political and governmental process.

The three high school juniors were selected for their outstanding achievements

within their school and community.

They are sponsored by Phillips Edwards Post 47 Auxiliary of Pinedale.
