Hamilton students attend Badger State

Hamilton High School juniors will again attend Badger Girls and Badger Boys State.

Attending Badger Girls State June 19-24 at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh campus are:

  • Uma Avinash; and
  • Amy Walsh.

Attending Badger Boys State June 11-18 at Ripon College will be:

  • Dan Baker; and
  • Dan Herriges.

The Sussex Lions Club and the Hamilton High School Athletic Department sponsor the students’ participation in the program. The students were chosen based on their interest in government, class standing and qualities of leadership, character and fitness.

For more than 70 years, Wisconsin high school juniors have been chosen to participate in this unique program where they can meet other students and learn about Wisconsin’s system of government. Students attending will learn about city, county and state government by carrying out citizenship procedures such as campaigning, voting and holding offices.
