Boys’ State Welcomes New Class on June 26


The American Legion Boys State welcomes the 2015 class of high school juniors on Friday, June 26.

Nearly 1,000 youth are expected to converge on the SUNY Morrisville campus for the week-long immersion in self-government, citizenship and leadership mentoring.

A cadre of American Legion counselors and a squad of U.S. Marines will be working with the youth. Top-notch speakers will headline their general assemblies. Team-building activities, sporting events and other extracurricular activities will fill out a full schedule.

It’s all aimed at providing an experience that will stay with the youth for the rest of their lives.
