Campolindo Junior Katherine Ginley is this year's Girls State Representative.
The American Legion Auxilary runs the Girls and Boys State program and chooses 500 girls and 500 boys from California to represent the program each year. For 75 years, these programs have taught teenagers the structure and responsibility of government. Boys and Girls State is known for producing U.S. Presidents such as the Bushes and Bill Clinton.
Girls and Boys State is essentially a week of participating as self-governing citizens while campaigning to get higher positions. Ginley says she hopes to win the Supreme Court Justice position, although the one who wins the position of State Governor gets to proceed to Girls National in Washington D.C and meet with either the President or members of Congress.
Campolindo's Boys State will be represented by junior Kyle Davis.
