Two Eden Valley-Watkins juniors were named to The Minnesota American Legion Boys State and Girls State; another two were named alternates. (From left) Alex Peterson and
Jamie Scherer will attend Boys & Girls State this summer; Erin Salo and Ryan Meyer are alternates.
The purpose is to instill the ideals of civic duty, Americanism, and an appreciation for deomocracy.
Boys State will be held June 9-15 at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall. Girls State will take place the same week, but at Bethel University in Arden Hills.
