A successful American Legion Program has been completed by Smithtown children

This summer, HSE junior Anthony Spiezio, HSE sophomore George Donohue, and HSW sophomore Michael Teplansky completed the New York State American Legion’s Boys State Program.

Protocols for room inspections, cell phone bans, and marching in formation were just a few of the government and military customs the children were taught.

To fill different governmental roles, elections were held. Michael Teplansky, a senior at High School West, was elected governor of New York State, while Anthony Spiezio, a student at High School East, was elected to the state assembly. Spiezio claims that he has never felt closer to a group of individuals in such a short amount of time as he did throughout the program since everyone was having so much fun. All three Smithtown seniors plan to submit applications to West Point and other service schools this year.
