Local delegates to attend the Keystone Girls State of the American Legion Auxiliary at Shippensburg University were recognized at The State Tea held Sunday at the Lehighton American Legion Post 314.

Attending the Keystone Girls State are Kayla Susko, Victoria Vetter, Miranda Wilcha, Stacey Kershner, Kara Serfass, Erin Bucci, Nicole Mautino, Ashley Otto and Mary Slack.

The event offers training in the practical process of self government and good citizenship as practiced in a democratic society.

Each June, approximately 150 enthusiastic young women participate in Keystone Girls State (KGS) sessions at Shippensburg University.

While at KGS, the "citizens" study local, county and state government processes. They do this by setting up their own miniature city, county and state governments and administer them according to the laws of the commonwealth.

The girls' participation in the event is sponsored by local American Legion Auxiliary Posts, including Lehighton, Walnutport, East Stroudsburg, Allentown, Hazleton and Jim Thorpe.

They are all in the junior class at their respective high schools.
