The American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Unit 80, in Andalusia, sponsored scholarships to five local students to attend Girls State.

This year’s event is scheduled to take place from Sunday, June 5 to Friday, June 10, and will be held at Troy University.

These outstanding juniors and seniors from each high school in the county were selected to learn and participate in a weeklong “laboratory of practical government, policies, and citizenship.”

Those five students are as follows: Meleah Treadaway of Andalusia High School, Caroline Courson of Opp High School, Suzanna Warthen of Pleasant Home School, Kayley Peeples of Red Level School, and Carlin Bates of Straughn High School.
