Local American Legion Post #312 to sponsor Texas Boys State delegates
From Enterprise Staff
How would you like to gift a young man with an opportunity of a lifetime? The Texas American Legion will host Texas Boys State on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin June 11-16 and the local Post #312 is searching for five young men to send, all expenses paid.
To be eligible, the young men must: be male high school students; have successfully completed their junior year; be recommended by their high school; and demonstrate strong academic performance, keen leadership skills and excellent interpersonal skills.
American Legion Boys State is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students. It is a participatory program where each student or delegate becomes a part of the operation of his local, county and state government. Delegates are exposed to the rights and privileges, the duties and the responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective and practical, with city, county and state governments operated by the students elected to the various offices.
If you know of a young man who meets these qualifications and would like to attend, please contact your school counselor or Post #312 at 936-327-7601. The post deadline for submission is April 20 and is first come first served. For more information, contact Post Commander Jeanette Jackson at 832-444-6595.
