South Shore Foundation Helps Legion Auxiliary with Girls State
September 2005

American Legion Auxiliary Unit 340 at Diamond City received a grant of $300 from South Shore Foundation that helped send girls from area high schools to Arkansas Girls State held at Harding University at Searcy. The grant provided funding for two delegates to attend the six-day program. The five girls attending were: Whitney Methvin and Brittney Parsley from Lead Hill school, Kayla Tindall and Abigail Ellis of Omaha school, and Savanna Smith of Bergman school.

Sandra Wright, chairman of the Girls State project for Unit 340, said the Legion Auxiliary tries to send up to six delegates each year to the educational summer event. The purpose of Girls State is to educate young women in the duties, privileges, and responsibilities of American citizenship and to provide an opportunity for them to participate in the actual functioning of their government.

"It is a pleasure for us to assist girls who display leadership, character, honesty, scholarship, cooperation, community participation and service," said Mrs. Wright. "They enjoy a week at an outstanding Arkansas college campus, and they learn valuable lessons in citizenship," she added. Their participation is subject to the approval of their school administrators.

Jodie Elizabeth Jeffrey, chairman of the board of directors, congratulated Mrs. Wright and the American Legion Auxiliary for giving the girls the opportunity that Arkansas Girls State provides for personal growth and citizenship.
