DOVER, Del. – Governor John Carney released the following statement after speaking with young women of the Delaware American Legion Girls State Program. Governor Carney spoke with the American Legion Boys State Program on Tuesday, June 13.

Students get a sense of what government is all about and how it operates. This experience is their first step along the way toward becoming future leaders of Delaware. Thank you to all of the students for stepping forward, for your participation in Girls State and Boys State, and for starting on this path to public service.”
Governor Carney addressed both programs and met individually with the Boys State Governor, Shreyas Parab of Archmere Academy, and the Girls State Governor, Natalie Nwanekwu of Newark Charter High School.
