Boys/Girls State students recall experience as ‘life-changing’ – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

For several Vacaville-area high school seniors who attended Girls or Boys State in June, all recalled their experience as “life-changing” or a source of new self-knowledge, instilling confidence about their plans for college and their futures.

“It helped me learn a lot about myself, it helped me push my own boundaries,” said Vacaville High’s Jessica Papadopoulos, 17, who boasts a 4.6 GPA and still finds time to play varsity girls volleyball and pole vault for the Bulldogs.

She, along with Wood High’s Jeffrey Teel and Vanden High’s Sonja Thrasher, and 10 others were feted recently during a recognition ceremony at the Vacaville Veterans Memorial Building.
