Buckeye Boys State is held at Bowling Green State University annually and lasts for 2 weeks.  The competition for a slot there is tough, and the interviewers are dedicated to selecting the most qualified young men to attend this course.  This year, the Post had 8 of it's own boys attending, with 1 additional from Columbus Arts Academy.  Anyone who wishes is allowed to visit the University to see how these young men are doing.  Another great year for Gahanna area youth and Buckeye Boys State!!

For more information regarding Buckeye Boys State you can contact Malcolm Glasgow, pictured left, at (614) 404-9705, or send him an e-mail at macglasgow@sbcglobal.net   If there is no connection, please email site@al797.org.

During 2013 the Post sent 8 young men to Buckeye Boys State.  The quota for Post 797 was originally 9 attendees .

Interested in sponsoring one or more of these future leaders of our city, state, or nation?  IF SO, contact Malcolm and he will meet with you and go over the details and the benefits of sponsorship.  Sponsors of this nationwide program will be featured on this site each year to let everyone know how much you care about our young boys who are our future leaders.  Get on board and show the youth of Gahanna that you care about your and their futures. 

Post 797 of the Gahanna American Legion wishes to thank the sponsors who have so graciously given the funds so these young men can attend Buckeye Boys State for 2010.  Those sponsors are listed below:
