Bay Legion, Kiwanis host Buckeye state delegates
The Bay Village American Legion Post #385 and the Bay Village Kiwanis Club welcomed the 2019 Buckeye Boys and Girls State Delegates to their August meetings.
The delegates had completed a nine-day program, experiencing many levels of state, county and city government. They each had an opportunity to compete for and serve in positions from state governor down to local city offices. Around 900 Girls State delegates from all over Ohio met at Mount Union University. The Boys State participants numbered 1,200 and gathered at Miami University.
All of the delegates were 11th graders at Bay High. Each described their experiences and all said they came away with a much better understanding of how governments function. Buckeye Boys State was established in 1936 and Buckeye Girls State was established in 1946.
