Three Stillwater Area High School students represented the Stillwater area at the American Legion’s Boys State event at St. John’s University in Collegeville in June. Leo Montie, Adam Johnson and Ben Wicklund were sponsored by the Bayport American Legion Post 491. Montie was elected Boys State governor. Nearly 300 students attended this year’s Boys State program, which teaches high school students about government and gives them the opportunity to participate in simulated activities, such as legislative sessions, court proceedings and more.
