Virginia Girls State 2010

Ishani Premaratne '11
From June 20-26, MLWGS Seniors Ishani Premaratne and Sarah Goggin attended Virginia Girls State. This week-long citizenship seminar is sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary and gives rising high school seniors from all across Virginia the opportunity to immerse themselves in a study of Virginia government. From among the 600 girls who attended the program, Ishani Premaratne was elected to the highest office of the week long program. As "Governor," Ishani will return next year to preside over the 2011 Virginia Girls State. For more information: http://girlsstate-va.org/vags/
