Boys State & Girls State

The Mt. Ararat Social Studies Department has selected four students and two alternates to participate in Boys State and Girls State this summer.  Sponsored by the American Legion and its auxiliary, these organizations provide Maine high school juniors with the opportunity to participate in a program that supplements their high school courses in government and its functions.  In this program, young men and women role-play as they learn to campaign for local, county, and state offices and then organize and carry out the functions of state government.  Students are Eloise Melcher, Elsie Morgan, Kristin Haines (alternate), Brian Johnson, Eli Bush, and Ryan Smith (alternate).
