Congratulations to seniors Anthony Spiezio (HSE), George Donohue (HSE) and Michael Teplansky (HSW) on completing this Summer's NYS American Legions Boys State Program.
The students learned about government process as well as military protocol such as room inspections, no phones (!!) and marching in formation.
For the government side, elections were held for various positions. High School East senior Anthony Spiezio was elected to be state assemblyman and High School West senior Michael Teplansky was elected to be NYS Governor
According to Spiezio, the program was so much fun and nobody wanted to leave because “I’ve never become closer with a group of people so fast."
All three of the attendees from Smithtown will continue their journey to apply to West Point as well as other Military Academy’s this year.
