Elwood-John H. Glenn High School students Christopher Sanelli and Addison Perinchief were recently selected for this summer’s Boys/Girls State program run by the American Legion. Sanelli will attend Boys State College from June 25 to July 2 at the SUNY Morrisville campus, while Perinchief will attend Girls State College from July 2 to 8 at the SUNY Brockport campus.
American Legion Auxiliary Boys/Girls State is a nonpartisan hands-on program that teaches young Americans about responsible citizenship, the governmental process and the Constitution. During the weeklong program, students build the government of a mythical 51st state, from the local level up to the state level, participating in campaigns, rallies, speeches, legislative committees, bill creation and a community service project.
