Greater Cincinnati Women’s American Legion Post 644 is pleased to announce the selection of its 2021 delegate to Buckeye Girls State. Kaitlyn Lott, a junior at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, will attend Buckeye Girls State from 6/13 through 6/19 at University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio.
Girls State is a nationwide program of the American Legion Auxiliary. During Girls State, young women are educated in the duties, privileges, rights, and responsibilities of good citizenship. Lott will learn about Ohio government – city, county, and state – by being actively involved in such activities as campaigning in mock parties and mock elections.
Buckeye Girls State celebrates its 75th year in 2021.
The Ohio American Legion Auxiliary Unit, who sponsors Buckeye Girls State, looks for young women who have a definite interest in government, have good grades, demonstrate excellent moral character and leadership, are mature, are willing to be involved, and take and follow directions and rules. Lott, who comes from a military family that is very active in the American Legion, applied, was selected for an interview, and then chosen as a delegate.
“It is a great honor to represent CHCA and Post 644,” shared Lott. “I am excited to spend the week with future female leaders from across the state and take part in hands-on learning about our government. I am hoping that this experience will help me in choosing my path in college. I hope that my partnership with Post 644 will lead to more girls from CHCA being chosen to participate in the future.”
