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
