Connolly: A letter to a Girls State participant
Monday, November 11, 2019
I have had the honor of working with Wyoming high school students who participate in Girls and Boys State, a summer leadership and civics program. The kids run for state office, as well as draft and debate policy bills. The issues they choose are some of the most cutting and crucial topics of the day.
While the participants rave about the program and their experiences, I am the one who is truly impressed. These kids are our future, and I am in awe of their commitment and passion. My essay on “Hopes and Dreams for Wyoming’s Women and Our Future” is in the form of a response to a letter from the fictional Angelica, a Girls State delegate.
