Boys State representativesLackawanna High School juniors Theodore Heath and Anthony Olejniczak have been selected to represent the Matthew Glab Post 1477 at the prestigious 2019 American Legion Empire Boys State Program. They were selected to attend by members of the Matthew Glab Post 1477 due to their academic success, leadership qualities, character, and community involvement and volunteerism.

American Legion Empire Boys State is a week-long program that immerses high school youth (currently completing their junior year) in citizenship and leadership training. They learn the practical aspects of government as it exists in New York State, and come to recognize that the individual is integral to the character and success of government. They also participate in physical fitness, teamwork and other activities, under the guidance of American Legion counselors and U.S. Marines.

Boys State will be held from June 27 to July 2, 2019 at SUNY Morrisville State College in Morrisville, NY.
