TORRINGTON – Autumn Hoffman of Torrington High School has been selected to represent the community at the 75th session of American Legion Auxiliary Wyoming Girls State to be held on the campus of Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, June 11-17.
The program emphasizes the importance of government in modern life and educates young women in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American citizenship. It awakens a sincere conviction that a well-informed, intelligent, participating citizenry is vital to protect and preserve our American institutions and our democracy. These goals are achieved by actual participation in a simulation of the political and governmental process.
A release from the local American Legion post, which will sponsor Hoffman, stated: “(The) Travis Snow Post Unit No. 5 is pleased to be able to send Hoffman to this year’s Girls State session. We believe she represents the model example of youth eager to learn. Hoffman spends her days focusing on her schoolwork and enjoys participating in her school’s choir. She holds the title of a Past Honor Queen in Wyoming Job’s Daughter’s Bethel No. 20 of Torrington, and is passionate about her involvement in that organization and its contributions to our community.”
