Congratulations to the Ray-Pec High School students nominated to attend Missouri Girls State in June.
Several community organizations are paying the fees ($400 or $300) for students to attend. Thanks to the Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation, Peculiar Area Chamber of Commerce, Raymore-Peculiar Sunrise Optimist Club, Community Bank of Raymore, and Belton American Legion Post #488 for their generous support. Each of these organizations is sponsoring one boy and one girl to participate.
Chosen to represent Ray-Pec at Girls State (from left): Becca Bessette, Cecelia Moss (alternate), Sydney Booth (alternate), Tammy Yang, Jordan Wright, Kamryn Martin, & Mackenzie Loftin.
Both events take place on the campus of the University of Central Missouri. Missouri Boys State is from June 16-23 and Missouri Girls State is June 24-30.
