Recently  the American Legion Auxiliary Capitol Unit 4 held their annual Girls  State Tea at the Governor’s Mansion. Proceeds from the Tea benefit Girls  State delegates from Carson and Douglas High Schools. Delegates were interviewed and selected based on  academics and leadership qualities both in school and in our communities. Girls State  is an Americanism study program, and delegates are given information  and gain exposure in the affairs of government that will increase their  interest and usefulness as citizens. We would like to thank our  generous donors and supporters who helped make this event successful:
