Zachary Knott Attends Keystone Boys State
Zachary Knott, a junior at Blue Ridge High School was sponsored by the Hallstead-Great Bend American Legion Post 357, to attend Keystone Boys State.
The experience in government was held at Shippensburg University, June 24-29. Zachary was one of first boys that Post 357 sponsored for this event. About 116 boys throughout the state of Pennsylvania, sponsored by area Legions, participated. They studied how the government is run on city and state levels. The boys learned about Parliamentary Procedure following Robert's Rules of Order. They also learned about leadership through Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People/Teens. A governor, lt. governor, and other officers were elected. They also spent a day at the capitol.
Two boys were selected as senators to attend Boys Nation in Washington, DC in July. It was a great experience.
Zachary is the son of David and Valorie Knott and the brother of Emily, of Hallstead. He is currently fourth in his class and active in the National Honor Society, Pride Club, Student Council, and has been listed for three years in Who's Who Among America's High School Students.
