The Vergennes American Legion Auxiliary has selected two junior girls from Vergennes Union High School to attend Green Mountain Girls’ State this year. The Auxiliary will sponsor Peighton Duprey and Nora Hatch as they spend the days of June 17-22 at Vermont Technical College in Randolph, Vermont. Four alternates were also selected: Norah Deming, Ally Atkins, Anya Sonwaldt and Anneke Boelens. Congratulations to all six young women.
The purpose of Girls’ State is to provide citizenship training for girls of high school age; to afford them an opportunity to live together as self-governing citizens; and to inform them about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American citizenship, in order that they may understand and participate in the functioning of their government.
