Greenwood High School representatives to Badger Boys State and Badger Girls State were announced this week by Principal Clifton Fonstad. Charles Vesel, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Vesel, and James Berrett, son of Mr. and Mrs. Verland Berrett, will represent their school and community at the 16th annual Badger Boys State on the Ripon College campus June 8 – 15. The boys are being sponsored by the Wallis-Hinker American Legion Post No. 238 and the Greenwood Rotary Club, who have sponsored boys for a number of years. Nancy Cox, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Cox will attend Badger Girls State on the University of Wisconsin campus, June 25 to July 2. Nancy is being sponsored by the Greenwood American Legion Auxiliary.

The candidates for Badger Boys and Girls State are selected by the high school faculty. They are selected from the junior class, and the selections are based on leadership qualities, character, courage and cooperativeness and scholastic rating. The Badger State programs have been enthusiastically endorsed by the leaders of our state and have proven to be very worthwhile.
