Four rising Tallulah Falls School seniors were selected to attend Boys and Girls State leadership development programs this summer.

Cade Bramlett, Eli Clouatre, Kate Gilmer and Clara Pence were selected by school administrators to attend the week-long summer workshops.

According to TFS College Counselor Bobby Hammond III, the selection process for the program is multifaceted with input from educators, administrators and Boys and Girls State alumni. During the selection process, weight is given to the opinions of Boys and Girls State Alumni.  

“They know and understand what is required and what will be asked of the students while attending the workshops,” Hammond said.

Gilmer and Pence traveled to Georgia Southern in Statesboro while Bramlett and Clouatre attended the program held at Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville.

The four students selected to this year’s class for Boys and Girls State continue in the Tallulah Falls School tradition of selecting young people who are accomplished in multiple areas both inside and outside the classroom as well as on and off campus.  

“The four students chosen this year are quiet leaders who set examples for others to follow,” Hammond said. “Their academic accomplishments place them among the best students in the class of 2018. It speaks highly of the nominees to have the endorsement of their peers that have gone before them.Their nomination to Boys and Girls State is well deserved.”

Georgia Boys State, a program of the American Legion Department of Georgia offers a course of instruction in state and local government. Georgia Girls State, affiliated with the American Legion Auxiliary, is a course of instruction in and a practical application of, the fundamental principles and procedures of city, county and state government under the American system.  

TFS sponsored the students for the week-long workshops.
