I am thrilled that you are interested in the Mississippi American Legion Boys State program, Mississippi’s premiere youth leadership program. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to attend many years ago. Boys State changed my life and taught me some invaluable lessons. My Boys State experience is only one of thousands. I hear countless stories each year about how this program encouraged, strengthened, or built a fire in a young man’s life. My volunteer staff and I are honored to work for this program’s future success. If you’re an eligible young man, I encourage you to jump right in and apply today. If you are a parent, educator, or Boys State alum, I encourage you to spread the word and to send us the outstanding young men in your communities. As we prepare for our next session, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with my staff or me if you have any questions or concerns.
All the best,
