Makenzie White has been selected by the American Legion Auxiliary to attend the 2012 Tar Heel Girl’s State
in June at Catawba College in Salisbury, N.C.
This is a week-long opportunity for selected junior girls to get “hands-on” experience in how government works. Top N.C. government officials are among the leaders who address Girl’s State.
Many participants develop two fictitious political parties with campaigns, conventions and an election at the end. There are many special highlights during the week, including a talent show and Girl’s State Chorus.
