The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 260 recently held its regular meeting at Sheldon’s Restaurant.

After all reports were called for, Taylor M. Johnson, a student at Randolph-Henry High School, spoke on her experience when she attended Virginia Girls State as a delegate at Longwood University in Farmville.

She participated in softball during the ninth, 10th and 11th grades and she participated again this year.

Johnson is in the Beta Club, worked for Farm Bureau during the summer and has volunteered 77 hours with the Randolph-Henry Athletic Boosters.

She also attended the model General Assembly and plans to attend this year.

Johnson plans on attending college and hopes to major in biology.
