June 23, 2012 – Thanks to Legion Auxiliary for Emma’s Week at Girl’s State

Along with one other young woman from her school, Emma was selected to attend Girl’s State by Marshalltown Legion Auxiliary Unit #46.  The unit pays for Emma’s week there and we thank them for the opportunity they gave Emma to help learn and practice government and leadership.   Girls state is basically an election cycle in a week – girls run for office, discuss issues and pass legislation.

Emma deep in study as she readies to give a campaign speech or speak to legislative issues.  Emma was elected to her city council and county board of supervisors.

Here’s Emma with some of her peeps for the week – some members of her town.

The inauguration features all the girls in a mass choral performance.  Can you find Emma?

How about now?

The girls caused quite a spectacle when they crossed Lincoln Way in Ames on the way to the inauguration.
