The American Legion Post 563 of Bruno has announced the junior student to represent East Central and our community at the annual American Legion “Legion Boys State”.

Boys State 2021Ryan Kneisel will represent East Central at Boys State. Ryan is the son of Terry and Chris Kneisel of Finlayson. Boys State is being held on the campus of St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota from June 13-18, 2021.

Scholars for Boys State must be juniors in high school. They are singly honored in view of the outstanding qualifications set forth as requirements in selecting them. Students are selected through the cooperation of the Post, High SchoolFaculty, and leading citizens in the community. Minnesota American Legion Boys State is a weeklong experience of learning about the Minnesota government at the local, county, and state levels by "doing." It is a week of intensive study and involvement. The participants will actually organize and participate in the various levels and branches of government. Every boy will participate in the process of city, county, and state government. Highlights of the week include political speakers, mock trials, campaigning, and elections. Unlike summer or recreational camp, Minnesota Boys State is a week of studying and learning by involvement. However, they do have fun times, too.
