Please join the Wilton League of Women Voters virtual meeting on December 10th featuring several participants in the inaugural Ms. President US/Wilton program. Ms President US is a non-partisan, non-profit, community-based initiative, dedicated to inspiring and preparing girls in grades 4 though 8 to aim for the highest civic leadership positions and to know they can achieve them. The program seeks to teach the girls the importance of female involvement in public service, and both the responsibility and opportunity public service provides. Through the program sessions, girls learn about public speaking, polit​ical diplomacy, listening skills, local/state/federal government, and women’s history while having an opportunity to meet and greet exemplary female leaders. High school mentors work with the participants in each session. The program will culminate with a campaign and election for M​s President US/Wilton. Recent speakers at the meetings have included Kim Mellin, co-director of the Wilton Historical Society, First Selectwoman Lynn Vanderslice of Wilton, Themis Klarides, current minority leader in the Ct House of Representatives, and Ct. State Senator Mae Flexer. The Wilton program is the first formal chapter being launched through a replication process aimed at creating a template for local chapters to be established in additional locations. More information on the Ms. President program is available at https://www.mspresidentus.org/. The Wilton LWV is a founding supporter of the program.
