Benedictine was honored to have two of it owns named to American Legion Boys State. These two Cadets consist of: Blake Smith and Ben Walls. Both of these young men have demonstrated extravagant skills in the classroom throughout their years at Benedictine. Both teachers and students are proud of these two individuals.
Walls is truly honored to be selected. "I'm glad to have an opportunity to learn about the state legislature," said Walls. "Plus, it's a good chance to meet other kids from around the state."The American Legion Boys State is a session that is held once a year. It takes place at Radford University every year. This corporation selects the most respected and educated individuals from each region. Last year, Gabriel Romito was selected. "Gabriel is a great individual," Josiah Worley said. "He deserved to be selected last year and I'm glad he got a chance to feel great. Best of luck to Cadets this year."
The American Legion Boys looks towards Benedictine year after year because of its historic alumni. Whether its famous athletes, CEO's of large corporations or honored alumni of the past. Almost every Cadet who attended this outstanding function adores it. Romito said, "It gave me a great opportunity to experience what it is like to work in the political world."
Walls and Smith are next up to the plate. Many people believe they will succeed at this excellent function and strive for greatness. "Both of these individuals are very favored through Benedictine," sophomore Richie Smith said. "I believe they will strive for greatness at this wonderful event."
Walls is truly honored to be selected. "I'm glad to have an opportunity to learn about the state legislature," said Walls. "Plus, it's a good chance to meet other kids from around the state."
