By Kae Peterson, Blount City

When I first got here I was nervous and unsure

It’s going to be amazing my counselors assured

All these new people whose names were once unknown

And then just like that great friendships had grown

Discussing and building our own government

So much accomplished in such little time spent

Watching TN Supreme Court in action was a highlight indeed

They showed me that with hard work I can always succeed

Singing, dancing, and laughing away

Oh how I wish I could always stay

Thank you ALA for hosting this week

And a great thanks _to those who sponsored me

With all my great counselors and friends

I wish that girls state didn’t have to end

So proud to be in the Blount City Band

Volunteer Girls State is the best in the land
