Grandgenett is delegate at MN Legion Boys State
Payton Grandgenett was this year’s delegate to Minnesota Legion Boys State from American Legion Post 87, Alexandria. He attended from June 9-15 at the Minnesota State University, Marshall campus.
Grandgenett, the son of Mark and Deb Grandgenett of Alexandria, will be a senior this fall at Alexandria Area High School.
Legion Boys State was first held in Minnesota in 1949 with 169 boys from all over the state. This year, the program had 355 boys all just finishing their junior year of high school.
This is a practical learning experience in local and state government. They are encouraged, through participation, toward a better civic behavior and appreciation of democratic ideals.
