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 West Virginia’s 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.

ALMBS is sponsored by the nation’s largest wartime veteran’s service organization – The American Legion. For 100 years, The American Legion remains committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans - these are known as the Four Pillars of The American Legion: Veterans, Americanism, Youth and Defense. This year 349 young men participated in the weeklong program from throughout the 55 Counties of West Virginia.

The American Legion would like to congratulate the local Calhoun County graduates, Kyle Persinger and Kole Jarvis.
