Maddie Beaver recently served as a delegate to Alabama Girls State, representing Baldwin County High School. Alabama Girls State is sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. Delegates spend a week on the campus of the University of Alabama learning how government works. The delegates are divided up into cities and political parties, hold elections and learn how laws are made and cities, counties and states are governed. In addition, delegates have the opportunity to hear from speakers and leaders in government and business and also took part in community service projects. Maddie is the daughter of Blair and Kimberly Beaver of Bay Minette.
