Post 539 honors scholarship, Boys State recipients
Legionnaire Steve Cicherski (l-r) joins Boys State attendee Zane Evans, and Stephenie Geistweidt and Coby Mills, recipients of American Legion Post No. 539 scholarships.
American Legion Post No. 539 in St. Hedwig acknowledged the outstanding academic and community achievement demonstrated by members of the class of 2014 and selected its annual award winners.
The two students were presented with $500 scholarships toward continuing their education. Recipients of the 2014 American Legion Post 539 scholarships are Stephenie Geistweidt, an East Central High School graduate, who will attend Texas A&M University, and Coby Mills, a graduate of La Vernia High School, who will attend Angelo State University.
Additionally, Post No. 539 sponsored two young men who recently attended Boys State in Austin, which has been a program of the American Legion since 1935. The two selectees were Zane Evans and Luke Moczygemba, who currently attend La Vernia High School.
The training is objective and practical with city, county, and state governments operated by the students elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, chorus, and recreational programs.
