In a first-ever cooperative effort, three Nordonia Hills organizations sent Nordonia High School 11th graders to Buckeye Boys State at Bowling Green State University in June. The American Legion program is a "hands on" workshop in the principles and organization of Ohio government where the young men will learn about Ohio government by operating the agencies and levels of a mythical state government; the "51st State," themselves. Information about next year’s program is at www.ohiolegion.com.
