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
