Buckeye Boys State delegates
American Legion Post 750 has selected Kyle A. Cline, Brett Seese and Seth A. Legraen, all juniors at Fort Frye High School, and Marcus A. Wittekind and Steven C. Hardman, both juniors at Warren Local High School, to participate in American Legion Buckeye Boys State, an eight day intensive education program on Ohio government for high school students. American Legion Buckeye Boys State is a program where each participant becomes a part of the operation of local, county and state government. It will be held June 8 to 15 on the campus of Bowling Green State University.
At American Legion Buckeye Boys State, participants are exposed to the rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective and practical with a city, county and state government operated by the students elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, a band, and recreation. High School juniors are selected by local American Legion posts.
