Dylan was selected to be the Falls City High School delegate for the American Legion Cornhusker Boys’ State that was held June 4-10, 2017 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln downtown campus. Sutton joined nearly 400 other high school juniors from across Nebraska for a full week of learning about citizenship and knowledge of fundamental principles of American government through actual practice at all levels of state government.
Dylan was also selected to attend the 2017 Ashbrook Academy that is currently being held at the Ashbrook Center on the campus of Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio from June 18th to June 24th. The Ashbrook Academy is a summer program designed for rising high school juniors and seniors who share a deep interest in U.S. History and Politics. The University is offering two separate academies simultaneously. The first academy surveys the most important questions that have faced our nation from its founding through the civil rights era. The second academy, “Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War”, is intended for more advanced students and will take participants on an in-depth exploration of perhaps the most difficult era in American history, the Civil War. Dylan is attending the Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War Academy. Dylan is the son of Shane and Alisha Sutton and a student of Mrs. Lori Rech.
