Juniors Marlene Palacios and Carlos Hernandez will be representing Central at the annual Girls and Boys State Conventions this summer. Girls State will take place the first week of June on the campus of the University of Arizona.  Boys State will meet the same week at Northern Arizona University. The American Legion sponsors these conventions that bring together high school students from throughout Arizona to learn about citizenship and state and local government.  Delegates will organize political parties, compete in elections and run their own city council and legislature.  They will also elect delegates to represent Arizona at the Girls and Boys Nation meetings in Washington, D.C. Central thanks the Phoenix Suns for helping make this opportunity happen for their students.
