"Boys State was the best experience of my life! It's hard to believe that a year ago I went to Boys State and I can remember it like I was still there -- I had the time of my life! I'm already using what I learned at Boys State."

    Day to Day Activities - Monday, June 20th

Full Steam Ahead!

Bright and early Monday morning, Missouri Boys State came alive with the buzz of newly formed city governments. After attending Schools of Instruction, city administrators began constructing the framework of their respective cities, many citizens started their campaigns for county government positions, and still others worked to establish and grow their own businesses.

The afternoon featured county political party rallies. Along with forming local party platforms, leadership candidates within the counties began to make themselves known to potential supporters. County elections will be held Tuesday morning, and these county leaders will help shape the state level parties in just a few short days.

Evening Events

Missouri Boys State welcomed a former Major League Baseball player and coach for the Kansas City Royals, Frank White, as the keynote speaker for Monday night. He explained the challenges he overcame in his rise from a laborer to a baseball player, and later becoming a Franklin County executive. He explains that, "we must always consider ourselves leaders, because we can't lead if no one follows."

The evening was filled with county political rallies that host the candidate speeches for countywide offices. With city meetings and lights out, the citizens will face their next decision at the polls on Tuesday.

MBS Record
