The 2014 delegates to American Legion Boys State and American Legion Auxiliary Volunteer Girls State have been selected to represent Warren County High School and Boyd Christian School.
Girls and Boys State is a leadership and citizenship training program offered to young men and women. From the moment the students arrive, they are part of a community where they form and run a mock government by meeting, living and working with leaders from across the state.
The programs are designed to provide opportunities to practice good citizenship and leadership and instill a sense of pride in our state and country. Students may put into actual practice the theories of government through participation in city and state government as organized as a mythical 51st state.
The boys are sponsored by American Legion Post 173. They are attending Boys State from May 25-31 at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville.
Boys State delegates from Warren County are Alex Cripps, Drew Evans, Colten Fincher, Garrett Jones, Will Sweeton, Bo Tate and Jett Urtubees representing WCHS and Caleb Rigsby and Colin Stubblefield representing Boyd. Edgar Morales is an alternate for Boyd.
The American Legion Auxiliary Volunteer Girls State delegates are sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary and McMinnville Rotary. This year one additional girl from WCHS will be able to attend Girls State due to the sponsorship of two local women, Kay Foster and Angela Heffington.
The girls will attend Girls State from May 25-31 at Lipscomb University in Nashville.
Girls selected as delegates from WCHS are Allie Golden, Lilly Marttala, Isabella Smith and Grace Rains. Hannah Reed is the delegate representing Boyd at Girls State. Girls selected from WCHS as alternates are Samantha Butcher and Grace Iocona.
