United Local Buckeye delegates

United Local students named as delegates to the 2020 Buckeye Boys and Girls State programs include, from left, Garrett Swiger, Elizabeth Marhefka, Kassidy Everhart, Morgan Briceland and Landon Rhodes. Boys and Girls State programs are designed to develop leadership skills in young men and women who already exemplify leadership among their peers in high school. The program brings representatives from all over the state of Ohio for week-long hands-on experience in the operation of the democratic form of government, the organization of political parties, and the relationship of one to the other in shaping Ohio government. Boys State will be held a Miami University (Ohio) and Girls State will be held at the University of Mount Union. Both programs will take place over the week of June 14. Picking up the tab and sponsoring United’s 2020 candidates are the American Legion Post 684 out of Hanoverton and the Winona Ruritans. (Submitted photo)
