Summit Christian Academy junior Grant Miller was nominated and selected to participate in the 2013 American Legion Boys State program. Only young men who exhibit qualities of leadership and character are considered candidates for Boys State.
Miller will attend an eight-day hands-on experience in the operation and fundamentals of government at the campus of the University of Central Missouri in mid-June. He along with the best and brightest high school juniors from around the state will use the democratic system as a basis to construct their own state utilizing core values of competition, the value of public service, and the strength of the individual voice and vote.
“It is an honor to have one of our students be nominated and have the opportunity to attend Boys State,” said SCA Secondary Principal Emir Esparza. “Boys State provides such a wonderful atmosphere for young leaders in our community to come together in one place and learn about the democratic process.”
