Virginia Boys State: A Week That Shapes A Lifetime

I am grateful to attend the 77th Session of Virginia Boys State of The American Legion and serve as the Media Coordinator for this prestigious program.

Virginia Boys State is a program which provides the opportunity for rising high school seniors to gain hands-on experience in one of three areas of government. Participants cultivate leadership skills and develop pride in American citizenship.

This year we have 762 students participating in the program from all across the Commonwealth of Virginia. All participants arrived early Sunday afternoon.

I want to thank the Director Linden Dixon and all who have entrusted me with such an honor.

I’m excited to work with our resident social media guru Collin Lee and learning from his expertise as we collectively tackle the task of documenting this week’s events and sharing our journey with all to see.

I also want to give a shoutout to our wonderful host Radford University. For the upcoming week, we are all glad to be a part of the Highlander community.
