Wyatt attends Alabama Girls State

Lauren Wyatt was chosen to represent Thorsby High School at the 2016 session of America Legion Auxiliary Alabama Girls State, held on the campus of the University of Alabama.

During the week of June 6, she became a citizen of an imaginary state, taking part in the political life of her community, primarily through campaigning for and electing city, county and state offices.

She learned the operation of government by participating in party caucuses and through the election process.

Well-known speakers and other state, county and city officials visited and enlightened the young women on their civic responsibilities.

While there, Wyatt served on the Rules Committee of the Governor’s Cabinet and was also elected the nominee for Board of Education for her county.

Wyatt, the daughter of Shane and Stacey Wyatt and the granddaughter of Jeff and Sandra Carroll and the late Billy and Diane Wyatt, was selected to attend American Legion Auxiliary’s Alabama Girls State because of her outstanding leadership. Sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary, Alabama Girls State is a laboratory of practical government, and a personal application of the duties, responsibilities and privileges of being an American.

In her high school and local community, Wyatt is also involved with Beta Club, National Honors Society, FCCLA, Key Club, SGA, Math Team, Scholar’s Bowl, varsity volleyball and basketball, Diamond Dolls and her church youth group. She maintains a 4.3 GPA and scored a 31 on her ACT.
