South juniors Kathleen Roush, daughter of Craig and Annette Roush, and Giulianna Sutkiewicz, daughter of Fred and Angela Sutkiewicz, were selected for this honor.
The annual Badger Boys State Program will be held in June 2011 at Ripon College. Ryan Sorenson, son of James and Joann Sorenson, was selected from his junior class for this honor.
The selections were made by South High Social Studies and School Counseling staff, as well as student self-nomination, based on the criteria of leadership, interest in government and citizenship, character, fitness, participation in extracurricular activities, and grades. The Badger State Programs provide participants with a working knowledge of local and state government and an opportunity for an experience as self-governing citizens sharing experiences that demonstrate the duties, privileges, and responsibilities of a good citizen. The sponsor for Badger Girls and Badger Boys is the American Legion Auxiliary Prescott Bayens Post 83.
