York students attend Girls’ State

Heba Abdin and Carolina Guerry, both seniors at York Comprehensive High School, were selected to attend the 2013 Girls’ State. Heba ran for two offices — county commissioner and lieutenant governor — and won both.

Palmetto Girls State, organized annually by the South Carolina American Legion Auxiliary, is a one-week leadership and citizenship program, created to educate outstanding high school students. Girls who attend simulate political campaigns and elections. They learn about citizenship and public service from guest speakers, expert panels and staff members.

The delegates, who are rising seniors, are selected based on leadership skills and involvement in their schools and communities. Delegates are divided into groups of about 30 “cities.” They create local governments, devise party platforms and elect a Senate, a House of Representatives and state constitutional officers.
