Mayer High School juniors gathered for a pizza and pop party hosted by the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 78 in Humboldt. The junior class won a canned food contest in December to feed the hungry in our area.
The girls were asked to stay after lunch to hear about the Auxiliary Girls State program, which is being held this year at the University of Arizona in Tucson from June 5 to 11. Girls State is a marquee program of the American Legion Auxiliary that has been training female high school students for civic leadership since 1937.
