POMEROY — This year’s delegates to Buckeye Boys State reported on their experiences there at a recent dinner meeting of Drew Webster Post 39, American Legion.
Boy State was held at Bowling Green State University in June. This was the 76th year for the program which is geared to giving high school juniors some basic knowledge about how government works. It is annually sponsored by the American Legion, Department of Ohio.
The Legion sponsored four boys Alex Amos of Eastern High School, son of Lori and Jeff Amos; Marshall Aanestad of Eastern High School, son of Mr. and Mrs. Erik Aanestad; Robert Dillon of Meigs High School, son of Sherri Wolf Woods; and A J. McCollum, son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael McGhee. McCollum was not present at the dinner. Farmers Bank was co-sponsor for two of the delegates, with one being co-sponsored by Post 188 at New Lexington.
In addition to the comments from the delegates, Erik Aanestad noted that his son is a third generation to be selected to attend Boys State.
