What is the Legacy Scholarship Fund?
ANSWER: The Legacy Scholarship Fund is a very special fund that was created by The American Legion Riders. These motorcycle riders get together by the hundreds and ride from town to town across the United States, raising money to help pay for the college education of children who lost a parent while protecting our freedom. Many children have grown up without the benefit of both parents for this reason, thus making life difficult for them in many ways. They should never have to worry about how to pay for their education too. Enough. The American Legion Riders are known for their philosophy that, "We take care of our own."
We thank The American Legion Riders for your help and service to these exceptional kids! May God bless you and may God bless America. For more information about the Riders and what they do, please go to: www.legion.org/riders.

The members at Greendale Post 416 would like to congratulate our sponsored participant, Jacob Malinowski from Greendale, for being elected Governor of Boys State. Jacob is going on to join the distinguished members of Boys Nation, which involves all of the states at the National level. A former high school participant that was elected Governor of Boys State was Scott Walker, now Governor Walker of the great State of Wisconsin. We would like to especially recognize Jacob for this same great accomplishment at Boys State.
The American Legion prides itself in sponsoring high school boys who aspire to lead our country in some way. The Legion's goal is to help them by gaining real-life experience. If you think this program is small, guess again! Check out these pictures.

At the last assembly, awards were handed out for athletics, the staff was recognized for their commitment to the week, and the supreme court gave its decisions on cases. Here, citizens and counselors congratulated each other on a successful week at the final assembly. And with that, the 74th session of Badger Boys State is complete!
