Jones chosen to attend Empire Girls State Program

Caeiana Jones 002Cariana Jones was chosen to represent Whitehall at the Empire Girls State program later this summer.

Jones, a junior at Whitehall High School, was one of four girls interviewed last Thursday by members of American Legion Auxiliary Unit 83 and was chosen to represent Whitehall at the program, which will be held from June 30 to July 6 at the State University of New York at Brockport.

Paige Chaplin was chosen as alternate and will attend the program if Jones is unable.

Empire Girls State is a hands-on educational workshop, focusing on Americanism and the political process. The goal of the program is to help students to learn more about government, politics and Americanism. The program is sponsored by the New York State American Legion Auxiliary.

In order to be chosen, candidates must be a junior in high school and ranked in the top third of their class academically. Character, scholastic achievements and extra curricular activities can all be considered.

Jones is the daughter of Kathy Jones.
