Anna Caroline Adkins has been chosen to represent Moody High School at the 2014 session of American Legion Auxiliary Alabama Girls State, held on the campus of the University of Alabama.

For one week, she will become a citizen of an imaginary state, taking part in the political life of her community, primarily through campaigning for and electing city, county and state offices. 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 enlighten the young women on their civic responsibilities.

Adkins plans to campaign for the office of mayor. She will speak to her sponsoring organization and other organizations upon invitation, about her experiences at American Legion Auxiliary Alabama Girls State.

She is the 16-year-old daughter of Ronnie and Melissa Adkins and the granddaughter of Nancy Myers and David and Sandy Adkins.

Adkins was selected to attend Alabama Girls State because of her outstanding leadership. Alabama Girls State is a laboratory of practical government, and a personal application of the duties, responsibilities and privileges of being an American.

In her high school and local community, Adkins is also involved in the Moody High School Marching Band majorette captain, Moody High School Golden Crest Yearbook Editor, National English Honor Society Vice-President, Key Club Secretary, Beta Club member, St. Clair County Distinguished Young Woman participant, Moody Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassador and Honor Roll student.
