Every Year the Burton-Middlefield American Legion Post 459 holds a Commanders Reception where they award several scholarships to local graduates. The keynote speaker at this year’s event was Adam Henry, Esq., son of the late and well-known Judge Chip Henry. Henry spoke to the students about the lessons he has gleaned from life experience and the important input from his father’s guidance and example.
Post Commander Charles “Skip” Boehnlein conducted the scholarship award proceedings.
The winners were Tyson Sinclair, Kaylee Klepper, Katrina Ostrander, Makayla Fritinger, Ky Bowman, Kaily Foutty, Grace Lutat, Robert Czekaj and Arielle Sokolwski. The Women’s Auxiliary awarded scholarships to Hailey Francis and Madison Chapman.
