Capuchino Senior Earns High Honors at Girl State Conference

Lauren Valles photographed with Girls State Alumnae Foundation Vice President Yumi NamCongratulations to Lauren Valles of Capuchino! This upcoming 2018 graduate is already making her mark on the community. She was recently elected to a statewide position in Girls State -- a leadership program of the American Legion Auxiliary designed to increase awareness and knowledge of governmental processes while learning about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Lauren was elected Most Outstanding Citizen of her "city" by her 34 city-mates which qualified her as a nominee for Most Outstanding Citizen of the State. She was then elected by the "state" -- comprised of more than 500 girls from all over California -- to be the 2017 Most Outstanding Citizen of California Girls State. For this honor, she was given a one-of-a-kind Citizenship Medal and a $1,000 scholarship by the Girls State Alumnae Foundation as a reward. Finally, shortly after receiving these great honors, she was called back on stage because she was also named the First Alternate to attend Girls Nation in Washington D.C. Because of her many achievements, she was escorted separately by the Sergeant at Arms during the closing ceremony to join the two other Senators, the Second Alternate, and the Governor on Stage. As she says with excitement, "I had the privilege of retiring the Girls State Banner!" Congratulations Lauren! For more information about Girls State click HERE.
