American Legion Auxiliary Unit 315 Wylie, Texas announced that Monekah Ammouri from Community High School, Kirsten McGee from Wylie High School and Laura Elizabeth Jowers from Lovejoy High School will be attending the 2015 Texas Bluebonnet Girls State.
The three young women will attend the 2015 Texas Bluebonnet Girls State at Texas Lutheran University in Sequin June 14 through June 20.
According to girls-state.org, Texas Bluebonnet Girls State is a mythical 51st state where, for one week, participants, or “citizens”, organize their own city, county, and state governments. They elect their own officials, learn the duties of the various city, county and state offices. Citizens introduce and debate their own bills in a mock legislature. The program concludes with a visit to the State Capitol building in Austin where the citizens are given an opportunity to sight-see and meet state officials.
