PHS Juniors selected to Attend Hoosier Girls State 2019

 

Three Plymouth High School juniors, along with an alternative student have been selected to represent Plymouth High School at this year’s American Legion Auxiliary Hoosier Girls State. Hoosier Girls State will take place at Trine University in Angola on June 23-29. The delegates for this year’s Hoosier Girls State are Fernanda Cortes, Kelsey Kruyer, Alexa Orozco, and the alternate student, Mary Kate Flynn. The local Plymouth American Legion Auxiliary is covering the cost for PHS Hoosier Girls State delegates to attend Hoosier Girls State.

Attending Hoosier Girls State allows young women not only to learn but experience how Indiana government operates. Students will be able to apply and increase their knowledge of state and local government with hundreds of top female students from the state of Indiana. Past delegates have reported their week at Girls State to be a life-changing experience that has taught them to be more aware of their role as United States citizens.

PHS counselor Stacy Scheetz said, “It is an honor to be selected as a delegate for Hoosier Girls State. PHS is very proud of all four juniors who chosen as delegates not only for their academic accomplishments but for their involvement in extracurricular activities at school and the community.”

Many colleges give special consideration for admission and scholarships to former delegates of Hoosier Girls State. Delegates must be a junior in high school and have a 3.0 cumulative GPA or higher. Students must demonstrate leadership abilities, be honest, and possess good character. If selected, delegates must agree to stay for the entire week, barring any emergencies.

All four PHS students were selected for this honor by a team comprised of PHS administrators and guidance department personnel. The Plymouth High School administration congratulates all four students for being selected as this year’s PHS Hoosier Girls State representatives.
