Rush City High School juniors Alissa Mell and Joey Broding were recently selected to participate in Boys and Girls State.
Rush City American Legion Post 93 selected Broding for Boys State, planned for June 9-15 at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall. Mell was chosen by the Rush City American Legion Auxiliary, as Girls State will be held the same week at Bethel University in St. Paul.
These annual programs provide practical learning experiences in both local and state government. Participants organize and operate their own city, county and state governments.
