Bay Kiwanis, Legion select delegates for Buckeye Girls State
The American Legion Auxiliary of Ohio sponsors Buckeye Girls State, an annual program designed to educate Ohio’s young women about the rights, responsibilities, privileges and duties of a good citizen. They learn “hands on” about city, county and state government.
The Bay Village Kiwanis Club, along with the Bay Village American Legion, sponsors two delegates from Bay High School, providing aid to attend the weeklong program. Two alternates are also identified in the event that the delegates cannot attend due to unforeseen circumstances. The program is in its 64th year. This year it will be held at the University of Mount Union from June 16-22.
The selection committee met on Feb. 21, interviewed the seven candidates and chose Grace Chilton and Audrey Ray as the delegates to attend this year. Selected as alternates are Eliza Aleksandrovic and Kaia Atzberger. Conducting the interviews were Bay Village Kiwanis members Don Brasted, Stan Grisnik, Linda Potter, Foster McMasters and Jim Potter. Upon completion of the event, the delegates will attend a future Legion and Kiwanis meeting to speak about their experiences and insight gained through their participation in the program.
