Boys State 2014 Visits A & I
On Thursday, June 12, three Wyoming Boys’ State students visited A&I. Boys State is an American Legion program that educates boys from all over the state about Wyoming and its governmental structure. The American Legion describes Boys State as "A participatory program in which students become part of the operation of local, county and state government, Boys State was founded in 1935." Students are elected to various city, county, and state offices and receive practical experience in the operation of government. These students participate in activities like legislative sessions, court proceedings, and other legal presentations.
This year, three Boys State students were elected to the positions of State Librarian, State Budget Director, and Director of A&I. During the time they held those offices, the students visited A&I, where they learned about the operations of the Department. This visit included the Director’s Office, the Budget Office and the State Library.
