Congratulations to Our Girls State Delegates!

  Congratulations to Bailey Chariker, Kaylyn Herlong, and Rachel Porter for being chosen to attend Girls State. Alternates are Alex Addy, Reagan Fingerlin, Kris Griffith, and Kylee Howard.
  Palmetto Girls State is a one-week leadership and citizenship training program, created to educate outstanding high school students about state and local government and citizenship. Girls attending Palmetto Girls State experience governmental procedure by simulating political campaigns, elections, and the political process. They also learn about the principles of citizenship and public service from guest speakers, expert panels, and staff members.
  The delegates, who are rising seniors in high school, are selected for the program based on the leadership skills and involvement they have shown in their school and community. As citizens of Palmetto Girls State, the delegates are divided into groups of about 30 called “cities.” They will create local governments, devise political party platforms, and ultimately elect a Senate, a House of Representatives, and state constitutional officers.
