Palmetto Boys State is now accepting applications for its session to be held this summer at Anderson University from June 11-17. Palmetto Boys State is a program sponsored by the American Legion; boys who exhibit strong leadership skills and who have just completed their junior year of high school are excellent candidates. Students learn about government and actively create a mock state government with all three branches. Students can read more about Boys State at www.palmettoboysstate.com. Palmetto Boys State is an excellent opportunity to build leadership skills, and it is a strong activity to have as part of a college resume.
The local post of the American Legion has provided Dreher the opportunity to recommend 3 delegates and 2 alternates for the program. Students who are interested in attending should complete the application form below and return it to Kevin Kirkley in the guidance office by March 10. Then, a panel will convene to select the 3 delegates and 2 alternates from Dreher. The cost to students for the weeklong program is $120. Please feel free to contact Mr. Kirkley with any questions!
