    Day to Day Activities - Thursday, June 17th

The Infamous Group Picture

To avoid the midday sun here in Warrensburg, city and statewide pictures were moved up to 8 AM this morning. Photo day would take place in Audrey J. Walton Stadium and include shots of individual cities, the staff, and the entire organization. Some cities held up newspapers or made hand signs to set themselves apart from other groups. As is tradition, a session wide photo was taken featuring the staff surrounded by the citizens of Missouri Boys State. MBS Staff Photographer Andrew Mather directed the photo shoot as efficiently as possible and moved the citizens and staff through the football stadium before the heat of the day set in.

Completing the State

After a week of campaigning, statewide elections finally drew to a close this afternoon as results were announced this afternoon in Hendricks Hall. It has been Boys State citizens' civic duty to select and install the best possible slate of candidates to serve the next year's session of Boys State, and the announcement of election results signifies both the achievement of this goal and the winding down of the 81st session of Missouri Boys State. The new statewide officials will be sworn in during a ceremony featuring Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft and Governor Mike Parson this evening. For the first time this session, the sun will rise tomorrow on a fully operational Missouri Boys State government created entirely by and for the young men of Missouri. They will have one last day to finalize any of the legislation, media, or judiciary decisions they have worked on throughout the week.

MBS Record

The citizens of Missouri Boys State publish a paper that is delivered to the citizens every morning. Copies of this paper are published here every day for your enjoyment. Today's edition is available here.
