DOWNEY - Sponsored by Downey American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit No. 270, three local high school students recently attended an ALA tea in preparation for month's Girls State.The girls - Genesis Angviano of Downey High, Sarabeth Schibler of Warren, and Keana Flores of La Serna - were chosen to represent the auxiliary unit's District 19 based on their scholastic record, leadership qualities and service to their schools and community. They will be joined by 500 other girls at Claremont McKenna College next month, where they will study the functions of city, county and state government through mock proceedings. Girls State is held nationally in all 50 states, from which a girl is chosen from each state to attend National Girls State. Genesis is the daughter of Maria and Sergio Angviano; Sarabeth is the daughter of Irma and Daniel Schibler; and Keana Flores is the daughter of Valerio Olgvin. A luncheon will be given in their honor when they return from Girls State.
