The Hilton Stone American Legion Post 279 is proud to announce the
five outstanding boys from the Cannon County High School who have
been selected to attend Boy's State 2016, at the Tennessee Tech
University, in Cookeville, Tennessee. High Schools in Tennessee have
traditionally sent one Boy and one Girl from their school. Post 279 along
with the teachers at the Cannon County High School determined that there
are a lot of outstanding students in our school.
So we started
selecting 2, then 3, and for 2016 we have selected 5 truly
outstanding boys. Each boy has a sponsor or a group of sponsors who
furnish the costs for them to attend the one week of demanding
challenges. And if one notices the citizens of Woodbury and Cannon County
who attended Boys State/Girls State, they are all very
successful members of our community.
The Hilton Stone American Legion Post 279 is proud to sponsor Boys
State and proud to announce the 5 outstanding boys selected for Boys State
