For The Sun-Telegraph

Morley Haley

The American Legion Post 301 is pleased to announce that Morley Haley, a junior at Leyton High School, was generously sponsored by Weyerts Post 137 and will join nearly 400 other high school juniors from across Nebraska participating in the American Legion Cornhusker Boys' State, June 5 to 11, at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln downtown campus.

The annual citizenship program, sponsored by the Nebraska American Legion, is designed to provide youths a better understanding of how city, county, and state governments operate.

American Legion Cornhusker Boys' State is set up as a functional "51st state" and each boy learns how government subdivisions operate by actually doing the job. Participants will campaign for offices, hold elections, take part in band and chorus, compete in athletics, and be involved in other varied activities as part of the citizenship training program. They will set their own state government and draft bills.

Special lectures and addresses will be delivered by experienced public officials and professional leaders throughout Nebraska. Invitations have been sent to the Governor and Secretary of State offices for special appearances at this year's program. National acclaimed motivational speakers are also scheduled to address the entire group.
