Hennepin American Legion Auxiliary Post 1044 selected Hanna Hundley (left) as top candidate to attend this year’s Girls State on the campus at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston. Hundley is pictured with her mother, Melanie Hundley. Girls State activities were scheduled for the week of June 19-25. Hanna joined the American Legion Auxiliary during its July meeting and summarized the events she experienced while attending Girls State. She is anticipating a return to Girls State as a counselor. Any Hennepin girl, who is a high school junior, interested in levels of government should complete the Illinois Girls State form offered during the spring school year.
