Post 46 Baseball
Student Trooper Program
YOUTH CAREER LAW ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM (FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE STUDENT TROOPER PROGRAM) - This is one of the finest American Legion programs in which your local Post participates. Post 46 sponsors candidates, high school students of either gender, to attend a week long program in cooperation with the State Police. Young men and women have an opportunity to observe and participate in law enforcement in action. Candidates must be in excellent physical condition, willing to spend a week with rigorous discipline in anticipation of a possible law enforcement career. Hard work but yet fun is the report we have received from those who have taken part. If interested contact your High School counselor or the Post 46 Commander or Service Officer.
Post 46 sponsors candidates for the annual Boy's State program held on the Michigan State University Campus each June. All High School counselors in the area receive information on this program early each year and for further information on how to apply for entrance into the program through Post 46 contact 734-663-3920.
Boy's State is intended to give high school students, usually between their junior and senior year in school, an opportunity to see and participate in the working of government on a realistic basis. Many graduates of Boy's State have gone on to successful careers in government and other disciplines aided in their life's work by being a part of this program.
Although Post 46 currently has no Auxiliary the Girl's State Program operates much as the Boy's State program and applications for sponsorship will be accepted by the Post from young women as well as from young men.
The American Legion Department of Michigan offers what are known as Wilson/Brewer scholarship programs for deserving high school students about to enter college.
