Congratulations to the students chosen to represent Zion Christian Academy at Boys State and Girls State. The highly selective program allows high schools to send two 11th grade girls and two 11th grade boys to the week long leadership camp held on a college campus each summer.
After arriving at the camp, students are divided into subgroups called cities. The students elect local and state representatives during the week while they are learning about the political process, engaging in recreational activities, and working on leadership skills. The experience is invaluable, and they often make lifelong friends from around the state.
The students chosen to attend Girls State are Julianna Neelley and Tori Elias. Kendall Freels and Victoria Michael are alternates. The boys chosen to attend are Andrew Taylor and Nathan Davis. Ryan Green and Zack Perko are alternates. Girls State, sponsored by the American Legion Auxillary, will be held at Lipscomb University. Boys State, sponsored by the American Legion, will be held at Tennessee Tech.
Congratulations, again! We know you will represent Zion well.
