Crawford-Hale American Legion Post 95 in Vandalia has announced that Ethan Meyer has been chosen to attend the annual session of Boys’ State.
Meyer, the son of Mindy and Tim Meyer of Vandalia, will be a junior this fall at Vandalia Community High School.
Eastern Illinois University in Charleston will host Boys’ State June 13-19.
This is a seven-day, hands-on experience in the operation and fundamentals of government.
The program draws together the best and brightest high school juniors to help lead them down the path of individual success and leadership through doing not just learning.
The participants work together and form a state that is unlike any other. By using their unique ideas and beliefs, they shape the program and their own state.
Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies and seminars.
