The future indeed looks bright … and very funny.
Some of the best of local high school students were honored late Wednesday night at the Vacaville Veterans Memorial Building for their participation in the 2015 Boys and Girls State programs over the summer.
The evening of recognition was hosted by the American Legion & Auxiliary Unit 165 of Vacaville, which also paid for 12 local scholars from Vacaville area high schools to go to the prestigious programs for students between their junior and senior years.
The students received hands-on lessons in government during the weeklong camps, with the boys staying at CSU Sacramento, and the girls traveling to Claremont McKenna College in Southern California.
