The American Legion Mountaineer Boys State was held June 7-13, 2015 at West Virginia University Jackson’s Mill. Students took part in creating the 51st State to the Union. Founded in 1936, the goal of The American Legion Mountaineer Boys State (ALMBS) is to educate and train youth in understanding one of the country’s most precious freedoms; the democratic form of government. ALMBS is characterized as “West Virginia’s premier school of Americanism, Citizenship and Leadership!” West Virginia proudly holds the 2nd oldest American Legion Boys State charter in the nation.
Each year The State Journal partners with The EQT Foundation to honor exceptional students throughout the State of West Virginia. This year, four graduates from The American Legion Mountaineer Boys State (ALMBS) and six graduates from The American Legion Auxiliary Rhododendron Girls State (ALARGS) were honored.
