2021 ALA EGS Team

Get to know the rockstars who make all this happen!

Jennifer Farley
2021 ALA EGS Chairman

Jennifer has volunteered with ALA Empire Girls State for 7 years. She is a proud member of the American Legion Auxiliary. When not volunteering at ALA EGS or working, Jen can be found visiting her favorite place on Earth- Disney World, catching her next Broadway show, or rehearsing choreography to her favorite boy band groups! Her favorite part of ALA EGS is watching the growth that occurs within these young women and reaffirming that the future of our country is bright.


Wendy Privitera
2021 ALA EGS Vice Chairman

Wendy Privitera has volunteered at ALA Empire Girls State for over 25 years. She comes from a long line of Legion Family members. When not working on the ALA EGS program she enjoys fishing, spending time with her family, and traveling (when she can). Her favorite part of ALA EGS is the celebrating all of the accomplishments of the week during the State of the State Ceremony.


Kris Dziduch (Gee-Dew)
2021 ALA EGS Vice Chairman

Kris Dziduch began volunteering with the program after her oldest daughter had such a positive experience over 10 years ago! When not working on the ALA EGS program or working she enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren, enriching women’s lives with Mary Kay, and watching hallmark movies. Kris is ¬†always awed by the tremendous transformation that happens in just a few days. Knowledge, patriotism and inspiration of course, but also the way our participants change the way they see themselves and the world around them. There is a shift in confidence, bravery, perception, attitude, adventure, goals and friendships that impact the woman they become after the ALA EGS program experience.
