Since 1940, high schools throughout California have sent outstanding juniors to represent their schools at a program called Girls State. This week-long experience is an opportunity for students to learn first-hand about the structure and function of state and local government by forming and administering city, county, and state governments.
Rosary has once again been invited to participate in this prestigious program. Our faculty members were asked to nominate five juniors based on their leadership, scholarship, character, honesty, cooperativeness, and interest in community and government.
The five nominees are:
These five outstanding candidates were interviewed by representatives from the American Legion Auxiliary, the organization that sponsors Girls State, and also by Claire Arora, Rosary's ASB President. From the five candidates, the interviewers selected a delegate as well as an alternate who will attend if for any reason the assigned delegate is unable to attend. We congratulate all the candidates for it is truly an honor to receive a nomination.
Rosary is pleased to announce that the alternate is Megan Irving and Rosary's delegate for California Girls State 2014 is Kailey Goerlitz.
We are most grateful to Tom and Kathie Hernandez, parents of Kristina '99, who join with the American Legion Auxiliary each year to very generously sponsor our delegate's attendance at Girls State.
