VERGENNES — Four Vergennes Union High School juniors have been selected to attend this year’s Green Mountain Girls’ State. 

The Vergennes American Legion Auxiliary Unit 14 will sponsor Megan Mentzer, Tryphene Miguel, Sophia Johnson and Jing Williams when they attend Girls’ State  from June 23-28 at the Randolph Campus of Vermont Tech.

The purpose of Girls State is to provide citizenship training for girls of high school age and to inform them about the duties, privileges, rights, and responsibilities of American citizenship, in order that they may understand and participate in the functioning of their government.
