WAKE FOREST — The Walter E Cole American Legion Post No. 187 has endorsed five rising seniors from three area high schools to serve as delegates to 2015 Tar Heel Boys State youth program June 21-27 at Catawba College in Salisbury. The teens are, from second left Bailey Autry, Jack Noble, Sam Perry, Chase Moseley and John Latz. With them are Legion members Tom Rurka, left, and Norm Bell.
