Congratulations to Mick K, Zach F, Nat W, and Rob K, who were all selected as delegates for the 2013 convening of Evergreen Boys State at Central Washington University in June.
Boys State is a summer leadership and citizenship program sponsored by the American Legion for high school students between their junior and senior years. Boys State began in 1937 and is held in each of the U.S. states (excluding Hawaii), usually on a college campus within that state. In most states, only one or two students are sent to Boys State from each high school. Therefore selection is highly competitive, and the population of students attending represents the top talent from across the state.
Famous alumni of Boys State include Neil Armstrong, Tom Brokaw, Bill Clinton, Mike Huckabee, Michael Jordan, George Pataki, Dick Cheney, Michael Dukakis, Roger Ebert, Jon Bon Jovi, Trent Lott., Adam Ogden, Jeff Zantek, Thomas Karren, and Zack Turley.
