Three juniors from Ste. Genevieve High School were chosen to participate in the 2019 American Legion Boys State of Missouri program. In June, Nolan Klump, Koby Hatfield, Nicholas Giesler will head to the University of Central Missouri campus in Warrensburg for an eight-day, hands-on experience focusing on the fundamentals of government.
The program invites selected students to develop leadership skills by going through the motions of governmental processes. Nearly 1,000 student leaders build an entire state government in a single week. The three students were selected based on their leadership, academics and character.
Ste. Genevieve American Legion Post 150 sponsored the boys’ participation in the program.
