HURON American Legion Post No. 7 named Boys State delegates from Huron High School and James Valley Christian School.

Delegates at Huron High School include Colin Claeys, son of Arnie and Kris Claeys; Chet Glanzer, son of Curt and Vicki Glanzer; Arthur Hines, son of Brian Hines and Michele Bennett; Colton Hirschkorn, son of Dean Hirschkorn; Tyler Kleinsasser, son of Roger and Alison Kleinsasser; Eh Moo, son of Kyaw Klo and Ma Hnin Ze; J P Noonan, son of James and Shelley Noonan; Tate Sporrer, son of Chad and Misty Sporrer; and Andrew Uttecht, son of David and Angie Uttecht.

Chosen to represent James Valley Christian School is Benjamin Loewen, son of Dr. Nathan and Rosette Loewen.

The 2013 South Dakota American Legion Boys State will be held on the Campus of Northern State University, May 27-31.

The Boys State delegates were selected based on their leadership skills; their scholastic ranking; their character, honesty and cooperation qualifications; and their statement of interest.

These individuals must be willing to participate in the week of intense citizenship training and to study/practice the operations of the government at city, county, and state levels.

The American Legion Boys State of South Dakota has a two-fold purpose in mind. First, to better help youth understand and appreciate the American system of government and way of life, including the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. The second purpose is to give a better knowledge of the fundamental principles of government within the State of South Dakota. These objectives are sought by establishment of a mythical 51st State of the Union comprised of counties and cities, giving American Legion Boys State participants the actual experience in the control and operation of these units of government. The American Legion wants the boys of South Dakota to understand the problems of government as well as how it functions.
