Hopefully, they will walk away knowing a little more about the Ohio judicial branch and with the inspiration to go on and do big things.”Kelly McLaughlin, deputy director of the judicial branch of government at BGS, said the organization was contacted by the Ohio Supreme Court and was told that all four female justices were interested in participating in this year’s BGS event.“We were thrilled that they were interested in participating and we hope it will continue in the years to come,” McLaughlin said. “For most of the girls, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have contact with such high-ranking government officials.”Buckeye Girls State, in its 66th year, is a program for girls between their junior and senior year of high school. Girls are selected to participate in the program and are sponsored by their local American Legion Auxiliary unit, which pays the cost of their attendance.
