Big Rapids American Legion Post 98 picks delegates for 2022 Michigan Boys and Girls State

BIG RAPIDS — Big Rapids American Legion Post 98 has selected its 2022 class for the Boys and Girls State program.

Boys and Girls State is a week-long summer civics seminar that teaches hands-on governmental processes on how to effectively run a city, county and state, using constitutional democracy as its guide.

High School juniors are selected from schools all over Michigan and are nominated by their local high school social studies departments as worthy candidates.

The participants are sponsored through local American Legion posts. Boys State is held on the campus of Grand Valley State University and Girls State is conducted on the campus of Michigan State. This year, Girls State will be virtual.

Delegates selected this year for Boys State include Harrison Mishler, Quingyao Li, Isaac Hughes, Kaden Dubreuil and Nathan Lebel.

Girls State delegates include Emmalyn Doering, Emma Mondrella, Jenna Williams, Riley Brigham and Leia Ray.

Mark Brejcha, Post 98 commander, said the program representatives are a fitting group.
