Rising seniors Spencer Marchant, Russell Warren, Mary Ellison McCoy, Jenna Maunsell, Gracie Lawton and Alex May represented St. Joseph’s June 9-15 at the prestigious American Legion Palmetto Boys State and the American Legion Auxiliary Palmetto Girls State.

The Boys State was held at Anderson University and the Girls State at Presbyterian College. Selection is highly competitive, and students attending represent top talent from across the state.

Russell Warren was elected to City Council and later to the State Senate, the highest position at the county level. He also started his own third party at Boys State: the Populist Party.

Spencer Marchant was a member of City Council and the Superintendent of Education in his county.

Congrats to all of these talented Knights!
