Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

   The American Legion Post #35 sponsors a Legion program, called American Legion Boys State 2016. The Post is in the process of selecting candidates to attend the upcoming session which will be held on the campus of Carroll College in Helena, June 5-10.

  The Post has sponsored this program for many years and young people from Fallon County have learned the principles of state and national government and have used the knowledge to further their careers after high school or college.

   The endorsement in a resume that a candidate has attended Boys State is a leg-up for a better job or an appointment to West Point, the Naval Academy, or other agencies.

   Please encourage your son to attend this conference, or your  daughter to Girls State.
