Mallory McLauchlin Selected as Girls State Representative
Mallory McLauchlin ’20 was selected to represent PCA at the American Legion Auxiliary Alabama Girls State program in June 2019. Girls State is a nearly 80-year old program, held at the University of Alabama, designed to develop leadership skills, confidence, and an action-based understanding of our state’s governmental processes.
Girls State gives student delegates the opportunity to create a mock government with elected city, county, and state officials. McLauchlin ran for and was elected as the District Attorney for her party. In addition to mock government activities, the participants enjoyed hearing from notable Alabama leaders, including Governor Kay Ivey.
“It was a life-changing experience,” said Mallory McLauchlin. “It’ll be one that I will never forget. I met what I hope to be lifelong friends and made invaluable connections.”
