HTML Question

Changing the text of a button when clicking an attribute in the dropdown of it?

I have a dropdown button, when entering the webpage the button says "Select Region". If you hover over that button you get different regions.

The main value of the button needs to change when they click the region they want.

Also I want the button to be within the search bar on the right side, but it's always placing it underneath it like you can see in the example. I've tried a lot of different options, but I cannot get this fixed.

  var regionDropDown = $('.region_dropdown_section'),
      regionButton = regionDropDown.find('button'),
      regionList = regionDropDown.find('.region_dropdown_content').children();
