Burns Makes Mark at LA Girls State

Bossier Schools and Benton High were well represented at Louisiana Girls State, where upcoming senior Emmalyn Burns made her mark. 

Burns received the Outstanding Speaker Award, a special recognition awarded to only two participants at Girls State each year. She also served her citizens as a school board member, following in her grandfather Henry Burns’ real-life footsteps.  

Outstanding job, Emmalyn Burns!
