Three Howell Students Chosen For Missouri Girls State
Shayna Crosby, Elise Diesfeld, and Gwyneth Worobec were selected to attend Missouri Girls State during the summer and are sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary St Charles Unit 312. Girls State is held on the campus of University of Central Missouri June 24-30. These three Lady Vikings were selected based on their interest in government and current events, demonstrating high moral character, strong leadership abilities, and scholastic achievement. Congratulations to all these women who represented Howell.
During the week-long workshop, student delegates will be divided into cities and elect mock municipal officials and representatives to the mock state legislature. The participants also elect state officials, such as governor, lieutenant governor, and other state-level officials mirroring their actual State. The legislature meets to organize, elect leaders, and to pass bills, in a way that is similar to how their actual State Legislature operates. Some programs tend to have a more traditional education focus, providing speakers and training throughout the week and then concluding with mock political functions. Using a hands-on approach by running the mock government activities all week, the women learn and live the roles of elected officials.
