Three Chieftains Selected for Boys State

After conducting interviews at five high schools in Salinas, the representative from the American Legion has selected Chieftains to fill three of the five open spots for Boys State. Finian Rawson ’18, Michael Perez ’18 and John Sutherland ’18 were accepted into the program while Jake Ottone ’18 and Sam Robinson ’18 were announced as alternates. Boys State is a program in which students become part of the operation of local, county and state government. Founded in 1935, participants learn the rights, privileges and responsibilities of franchised citizens. Boys State activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, choruses and recreational programs. Congratulations Chieftains on this outstanding representation!
