Posted Friday, September 26, 2014
Loveland High School (LHS) salutes Seniors Meredith Montalbano and Sophie Greenberg who were selected by the American Legion Auxiliary of Loveland to participate in the American Legion Auxiliary Buckeye Girls State, an eight day intensive education program on Ohio government for high school students that took place in June.
“This is a program where each participant becomes a part of the operation of a local, county and state government,” said LHS Principal Chris Kloesz. “It was an honor for LHS to have two students selected to participate in such an educationally rich summer program; we are extremely proud of both students.”
Buckeye Girls State is designed to educate Ohio’s young women in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of good citizenship. Delegates are exposed to the rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective and practical with a city, county and state government operated by the students elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, a band and recreation.
