Mount Union Hosts Buckeye Girls State
June 13, 2016
ALLIANCE, Ohio – The University of Mount Union is again hosting the participants of the American Legion Auxiliary of Ohio’s Buckeye Girls State (BGS) through Saturday, June 18. This is the sixth consecutive year Mount Union has hosted this event.
BGS is a week-long program designed to educate Ohio’s young women in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of good citizenship. By getting involved in this active hands-on process, BGS delegates learn more about city, county and state government within one week. Nearly 900 rising high school seniors will be on campus participating.
Previous speakers have included Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor and justices Evelyn Lyndberg Stratton, Judith Ann Lanzinger and Yvette McGee Brown, as well as Governor John Kasich.
