Girl scouts take Washington D.C.

JACKSON, Miss.- Three girl scouts from the Magnolia state went to Washington D.C. for the Girls In Politics Initiative. The event was hosted by the Political Institute for Women.Maxine Rene, Vivianne Rene, and Kyita Welchin spent a day on Capitol Hill visiting landmarks and exhibits to deepen their understanding of the political process. Each of the girls was assigned a state to represent and a political office that she would create a mock campaign for.

The week-long camp ended with a fake election for each selected office, the introduction of a Bill and, of course, a pizza party to top it all off.

The girls took their mothers along for the trip, LaShaunda Rene and Casandra Welchlin. Rene leads Development for Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi. Welchin heads up the Mississippi Women’s Economic Security Initiative through the Mississippi Low Income Child Care Initiative. Both ladies are involved in and promote community involvement.
