The Agnew Shinabarger Pioneer American Legion Auxiliary are sponsoring Delegates Rachel Oxender, Kirby Miller, and Alternate Reese Cogswell to attend Buckeye Girls State. Buckeye Girls State will be held at The University of Mount Union, Alliance, Ohio.
The Delegates will attend the week long session on June 15-21, 2014. Buckeye Girls State is designed to educate Ohio’s young women about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of good citizenship. The delegates learn about City, County, and State Government. Through a hands on experience, the Delegates have the opportunity to learn about the mechanics of government offices, functions, citizenship, and patriotism.
This program gives a unique opportunity for the Delegates to experience building a government, to assume leadership roles, and to interact with their peers in a positive learning environment. Buckeye Girls State is celebrating it’s 68th year with over 900 high school girls participating.
The Delegates are from North Central High School. They will be entering their Senior Year of High School next Fall. Kirby Miller is the daughter of David and Tina Frankart. Rachel Oxender is the daughter of Kevin and Kim Oxender. Reese Cogswell is the daughter of Alan and Dawn Cogswell.
