Prescott students to attend Girls State
The local American Legion Auxiliary Unit 6 in Prescott is sponsoring three girls from Prescott High School — Claire Barrett, Holly Martinez and Madison Jackson — to the Girls State Program, sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. Girls State is a citizenship training program for junior-year high school students designed to teach the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American citizenship. This program was started in 1938 and is presented in every state in the United States. In Arizona, the program was first held in 1947 at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where it has been held for 72 years.
The program is scheduled for June 2 through 8.
