Colin Hang, Garrett Knight, Brian Oliphant and Coleman Hoppes, all seniors at Cassville High School, were selected to attend the American Legion Boys State of Missouri leadership experience that took place this summer at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg.
Boys State participants spend eight days studying the operation and fundamentals of the government by “doing,” not just learning. Using our democratic system as a basis, participants, or citizens, construct their own state, utilizing the core values that hold true in our everyday lives such as the need for competition, the value of public service, the strength of the individual voice and vote.
Citizens of the American Legion Boys State of Missouri are eligible to receive college credit and scholarships for participating and successfully completing Boys State.
