Students attend Girls State

CLAREMORE —

High school senior girls from Rogers County joined 416 young women from across the state selected to attend the 72nd  annual session of Oklahoma Girls State, hosted at the University of Oklahoma from May 26 through June 1. 
Rogers County students attending Girls State included: Reighly Blakley, Oologah High School, Mallory Martindale, Catoosa High School, Mickayla Davidson, Amber Robinson,     Sarah Vaughn and Cheyenne Walker, all from Chelsea High School, Jade Wilstead and Erin Wingo, both from Rejoice Christian School.
Sponsored and directed by the American Legion Auxiliary, Oklahoma Girls State offers young women the opportunity to participate in citizenship training designed to emulate Oklahoma’s government.   It offers educational programs of government instruction for delegates by immersing them in the operations of local, county and state government.  Throughout the week, the delegates campaign and elect government officials, including a governor and lieutenant governor, and participate in mock legislative sessions and court proceedings. 
During the week, Gov. Mary Fallin, Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb, former Lt. Gov. Jari Askins and many other leaders from Oklahoma government addressed the delegates.
