West Virginia Boys and Girls State Citizens Honored

Each year The State Journal partners with The EQT Foundation to honor exceptional students throughout the State of West Virginia. This year, four graduates from The American Legion Mountaineer Boys State (ALMBS) and six graduates from The American Legion Auxiliary Rhododendron Girls State (ALARGS) were honored. Each year there are three complete four-year scholarships, each up to $18,000 per year and one $1,000 scholarship from each of the 55 counties in West Virginia. The scholarships are awarded to students interested in studying engineering, geology, computer science/information technology, energy or land management and environmental or safety science. We are extremely proud of our participants and would like to congratulate them for their achievements. The following graduates from ALMBS and ALARGS were honored:
