To the editor:

I would like to express my gratitude towards the American Legion Auxiliary Post 89 for sending myself and seven other [Henry County High School] girls to Girls State.

It was an eye-opening experience where we learned the importance of informed voting and civil responsibilities.

We were given the opportunity to run for elections, construct party platforms and learn about the history of Tennessee state government.

Additionally, we made countless friendships with young women across the state.

None of this would have been possible without the support from our local American Legion Auxiliary Post, and for that I am so thankful.
