American Legion's Mt. Diablo Post No. 246 continued with its selection of high school students to Boys State. Delegates from San Ramon Valley High School will be Utkarsh Vasa and Chris Overstreet. Alternate selection is Jay Singh.
Boys State is an annual program for juniors held at Sacramento in June to give delegates a firsthand opportunity to learn the ideals and objectives of government and to practice in a mock government setting.
Cheers for scholars
Seventy-four Youth Football players and cheerleaders from Napa to Livermore, including the T-Birds, received Scholar Athlete Awards last month at Charlotte Wood Middle School in Danville. Diablo Valley Youth Football League presented them with a $50 savings bond and a plaque for their outstanding achievements. The youths had to maintain a 3.5 GPA and write an essay as well as receive a teacher recommendation to be considered to receive the award.
