Huston Bodily, a Junior at Timpanogas High School was awarded the Second Place Medal in the American Legion's Statewide Oratorical Competition.  Huston placed first in thePost and District Level competitions and represented District Four (Utah County) at the State Level.  His oration on the individuals personal responsibilty to support and defend the Constitution of the United States was bot thought provoking and stimulating at the same time. His challenge to the audience to read and learn more about the constitution will be long remembered by thoes in attendance.  We are proud to have had Huston represent Post 72 at the District and State events.  In keeping with the current Olympics, that would be two Golds and One Silver Medal.
