Riverbend and James Monroe students at Girls Nation

Two high school students from the Fredericksburg area are the state’s two representatives to Girls Nation this week.

The weeklong summer program teaches rising seniors about the American government process and is run by the national arm of the American Legion Auxiliary.

I’m pulling together a story about the girls, one who attends Riverbend High School in Spotsylvania, and the other who attends James Monroe High School in the city.
