They participated in a program designed to educate young women of Indiana in the duties, privileges, rights, and responsibilities of citizenship. It was a week of living and learning the political system through a mythical city, county and state.
While at HGS, Carissa ran for Superintendent of Public Instructions as well as Democracy County Treasurer. She was elected to the county treasurer position. Carissa spoke about her experience at HGS. “I made lifelong friends and got the opportunity to do my chipmunk noise in front of about three hundred and fifty people.” “For those who don’t know my chipmunk noise, it’s a sound that I can make that sounds exactly like a squirrel or a chipmunk.” She added, “I gained more confidence through running for the positions and meeting new people every day I was there.”
Nicole ran for City Vice Chairman and Senator. She was elected to both positions and also volunteered as the prayer leader. She added, “I made many friends and developed a greater respect for our country.” On Friday, Nicole traveled with other elected Senators and Representatives to the State Capitol in Indianapolis. While serving as Senator, she wrote a bill and participated in the process of submitting, debating, and passing of legislative bills. At the Honor Day program held on Saturday, June 23, Nicole received Outstanding Senator for Hoosier girls State 2012.
Carissa is the daughter of Mark-David and Carrie Pescatello and Nicole is the daughter of Len and Erin Lampe. The Girls State delegates attend Churubusco High School.
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 157 and Churubusco Rotary Club sponsored the program locally. The unit was the contributing sponsor.
