The TMI attendees for Texas Girls State this Summer held at Texas Lutheran University, Seguin, Texas, on June 19-25, 2022 were Cadets Gretchen Tiede ’23, Gabby Beck ’23, and Isabella Thrailkill ’23.
The American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary founded Girls State in an effort to:
- educate our youth in the duties, privileges and responsibilities of American citizenship
- give future citizens, in a realistic manner, an opportunity to learn the problems of government by performing the same duties as real office holders in the everyday world
- inform them of the rights and privileges of American citizenship
- instill a deep sense of the personal responsibilities and obligations which this citizenship entails
