Two students are named as delegates
Libertyville High School senior Joseph Aumuller and Carmel Catholic High School senior Ian Fleming will be among the 98 high school student representatives throughout the U.S. who were chosen to attend The American Legion Boys Nation in July.
They are the two delegates selected from the state based on leadership skills, academic record and activity at American Legion Boys State. The week-long program introduces the senators to the structure and function of the federal government while combining lectures and forums with visitations to federal agencies, institutions, memorials and historical spots in and around Washington, D.C.
This program is designed to inspire a strong devotion to America while providing a practical view of federal government procedures.
