SEYMOUR= Daniel Robinson, a student at Seymour High School, recently joined 215 outstanding juniors from high schools across the state for the 74th annual American Legion Boys State program. Daniel was a very active participant and contributor to the program. He was elected to a leadership position in the Boys State Senate, and was the recipient of the Harry Bartlett Award because of his hard work in that body. Based on his excellent overall performance, Daniel was selected as the first alternate to the American Legion Boys Nation program in Washington, DC. While Daniel was unable to attend that program, his selection as an alternate is a recognition of the outstanding job he did throughout the week of the Boys State program, which took place the last week of June at Eastern Connecticut State University. Daniel recently paid a visit to the town's Emil Senger American Legion Post 10 headquarters to discuss the experience.
