ROCKSPRINGS — Two Buckeye Girls State participants recently met with the American Legion Post 39 Ladies Auxiliary.
Due to prior commitments, Hannah Faluisi and Haylie Blankenship were unable to meet with the Legion Ladies Auxiliary earlier in the year when other participants attended, leading to the Nov. 12 meeting.
Auxiliary President, JoAnne Newsome and other auxiliary ladies welcomed them. Even after all this time since they spent a week at Buckeye Girls State they were excited to be telling about their time there. They said they had fun and had learned a lot and made a lot of good friends. They both held offices and also told of many fun and funny activities they participated in. Hannah and her roommate have made plans to attend each others graduation party even though they live three hours away.
Hannah is planning on attending Washington State and wants to go into social work.
Haylie said she had been accepted to three of the colleges she applied to but is waiting to hear from the one she really wants to go to. She plans to be a lawyer.
The girls readily answered many questions and it was obvious that they had a really great time at Girls State.
