        Genoa American Legion Auxiliary, Ottawa County Republican Women’s Club, Genoa Kiwanis and Genoa Chamber of Commerce each sponsored a girl to be a delegate to Buckeye Girls State.
        The young women selected included Megan Davis, Bella Klimkowsky, Sydney Kusian and Alyssa Mullins, all Genoa Area High School students.
        Buckeye Girls State, held June 16-22 on the campus of the University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio, is a program of the American Legion Auxiliary of Ohio. It is designed to educate Ohio’s young women in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of good citizenship. By getting involved in the weeklong mock government experience, participants learn about city, county and municipal government, as well as elections and voting procedures.  While at Buckeye State, Davis was elected as Mayor of Jones City. Klimkowsky served as city bailiff and defense attorney in Withrow City. Kusian was elected as city central committeeman for Merritt City and, after fulfilling her duties, worked as city bailiff and dog catcher. Mullins was clerk of city council for Davidson City.
