Barnes, Carroll will attend Boys State

BUDA — Jedidiah Barnes and Paul Carroll of Buda will attend this year’s Boys State June 7-13 at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.

The program of citizenship training is sponsored by The American Legion. Originated by the Department of Illinois in 1934, the plan was adopted by the national organization in 1935 and has since been put into operation in every state in the Union. The mechanics of government in Illinois Boys State are patterned after the established agencies of city, county and state government in Illinois.

Jedidiah will be sponsored by Frank W. Suggitt Post 261. Paul was selected by an anonymous donor from the Bartonville Legion Post.
