GRAND ISLAND — Cadets from across Nebraska have trained for a week to get a glimpse of what it takes to be a trooper with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP). Sixty-one cadets have completed the 51st Junior Law Academy and graduated June 13.
Alicia Bohlen, a student at Ashland-Greenwood High School, was among the graduates.
Junior Law is an annual program organized by the American Legion Department of Nebraska and hosted by the NSP Training Academy in Grand Island. Troopers from across Nebraska come together to teach the cadets and make presentations related to many aspects of NSP operations.
Cadets at Junior Law have recently completed their junior year of high school. Thirty girls and 31 boys graduated from the 51st Junior Law Academy during a ceremony Thursday evening in Grand Island.
Applications for the 52nd Junior Law Academy, scheduled for June 2020, will be made available in the coming months. The academy is open to 30 boys and 30 girls who are preparing for their senior year in high school.
