American Legion Post 541 has selected Chris Potts, Nick Koenig and Riley Martin to participate in the American Legion Buckeye Boys State, an 8 day intensive education program on Ohio government for high school students, where each participant becomes a part of the operation of a mythical 51st state – local, county and state government.
Buckeye Boys State will be held June 11-18, 2017 on the campus of Miami University, Oxford, OH. While there, the participants are exposed to the rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective, practical and non-partisan with city, county and state government operated by 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. American Legion Post 541 is located at 109 South 5th St, Continental, OH.
