It has been a jam packed first day here at The American Legion Auxiliary Sunflower Girls State! The 74th session began with one last staff meeting and meditation, followed by staff and counselor pictures.
We welcomed the delegates to Self and Oswald Hall at Daisy Hill Commons on the University of Kansas Campus. Staters checked in with KU Student Housing for room keys then found their city and counselors for the week!
The 2015 Governor kicked off our General Session, which included an address by Shelbie Konkel, a 2009 Sunflower Girls State Alum. The American Legion Auxiliary Lawrence Post #14 presented their Flag Program and explained the meaning of the thirteen folds of a flag.
The evening ended with party meetings, the nationalists and federalists split and met with their party leaders. The Staters returned to the cities for a final city meeting of the night, as well as a country meeting.
Magnificent Monday has even more in store for our delegates, with career panels and a bar exam!
