South Cobb student elected 75th president of American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation


Powder Springs’s Marli English rose to the top and was elected president of the 75th session of the American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation during their leadership conference recently held in Washington, D.C. 

The seven-day event for high school seniors provides aspiring young women leaders with practical insight into how the federal government operates, instills a sense of pride in the country, and promotes youth civic engagement. Elected by her peers who were carefully selected to attend ALA Girls Nation, English will take her oath of office on July 28.

A student at Campbell High School and an International Baccalaureate Diploma candidate, English is president of the Black Student Association, president of the Feminist Club, captain of her high school’s fencing team and participates in Quiz Bowl.
