Several members of the Class of 2020 are working away from school this week as members of Boys and Girls State. Held annually at Stonehill College in Easton, MA, and sponsored by the American Legion and their Women's Auxiliary. designed to teach democratic values, improve knowledge of government and encourage citizen involvement through an intensive week-long program that immerses students in grassroots democracy. Over the course of seven days, students create and manage their own municipalities and work to understand how our government functions. In addition, they form political parties, create a platform, and vote in a slate of officers that mirrors state government. They also elect two senators to represent them at Boys & Girls Nation, a gathering held every July in Washington, D.C.
Mount Greylock is grateful to American Legion Post 152 and their Women's Auxiliary post 152 for the financial and organizational support they provide for us every year.
