Three from area to attend Girls State
Faith American Legion Unit 327 Auxiliary has selected three area citizens to attend the 72nd Session of Tar Heel Girls State June 12-18 at Catawba College.
This year’s rising seniors are Nanci Rose Lefko of East Rowan High School; Emily Lauren Marohn of Carson High School; and Jan Moffit Sitterson of Carson High School.
Attendees at Girls State are addressed by top North Carolina government leaders; participate in development of two fictitious political parties including party platforms, campaigns and conventions, culminating with statewide election of a slate of state officers; and use parliamentary procedure to conduct all sessions, including legislative assemblies where bills and resolutions are drafted for General Assembly.
Highlights of the week include installation of state officers, a talent show and Girls State Chorus.
Girls State is sponsored by American Legion Auxiliary Department of North Carolina.
Catherine Thriveni of Salisbury, a senior at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, is one of four students at the school to receive North Carolina State University’s Park Scholarship.
She is the daughter of Pius and Nice Thriveni of Salisbury.
The Park Scholarship pays all expenses for four years of undergraduate study, summer enrichment programs, a computer and offers the availability of research grants and summer enrichment opportunities.
Since the school’s first graduating class in 1982, NCSSM has had 50 Park winners since the award began in 1996, including 14 in the past five years.
