She will learn the operation of government by participating in party caucuses and through the election process. Well-known speakers and other state, county and city officials are expected to visit and to enlighten the young women on their civic responsibilities.
McNaughton plans to campaign for the office of Speaker of the House. She will speak to her sponsoring organization, American Legion Women’s Auxiliary, and to other organizations upon invitation, about her experiences at the American Legion Auxiliary Alabama Girls State.
She is the daughter of Stanja Bond and Kenneth McNaughton and the granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Eric Williams and the late Mr. Donald McNaughton and Myra Jean McNaughton. She was selected to attend Alabama Girls State because of her outstanding leadership.
