SPRINGVILLE—Connor Edbauer has been chosen to represent the American Legion Post No. 431 at the 2014 Boys State at State University of New York at Morrisville.
Edbauer is the son of Joseph and Kristine Edbauer of Springville. He is an honor student at St. Francis High School and was recently elevated to the rank of Eagle Scout Troop 524.
Boys State is a program of the American Legion developed from the concept that youth should be offered a better perspective of the practical operation of government; that the individual is an integral part and commensurately responsible for the character and success of the government.
The program consists of classroom instruction, functional activities and general assemblies. Participants are assigned to a mythical political party, which results in involvement at the precinct, city, county, judicial circuit, senatorial or legislative district levels, as well as the state level
