Governor Kay Ivey visits Troy University to speak at Girls’ State

Some Alabama Girls’ State attendees leave knowing they want to pursue a career in politics and go on working for the state. One guest speaker did just that and made it all the way to the top of the Alabama government.

Governor Kay Ivey made a visit to TROY to speak to the Alabama Girls’ State attendees.

Governor Ivey attended the program in 1962 as a rising high school senior and was elected to serve as the Girls’ State Lieutenant Governor but she says that even if the girls don’t pursue a career in politics the week will prepare them for their future careers and teach them the main values of Girls’ State.

“No matter the direction that you want to take in life this week at girl state is already preparing you to get there,” says Ivey. “At Girls’ State our focus is on legacy of leadership, a heritage to honor, a future to form.”
