NEBRASKA CITY – Nebraska City chapters of P.E.O. are paying expenses for a high school and a Lourdes Central junior to attend Cornhusker Girls State.
Chanel Ehlers and Alivia Stuhr will attend the annual event in Lincoln June 3 to 9. It is intended to teach the importance of civic engagement in a democracy.
PEO members learned there was no organization available to sponsor girls from Nebraska City this year, but FV President Sara Crook said school counselors worked quickly to complete paperwork for the students selected by their schools.
PEO is an international organization that supports women’s educational opportunities.
