BOYS STATE COMES TO MSU — Mississippi State University has been selected as the 2013-15 host campus for Mississippi's American Legion Boys State program. Sponsored by the American Legion, Boys State is the nation's premier program for teaching how government works while developing leadership skills and an appreciation for the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Boys State Director Neal Boone, left, MSU President Mark E. Keenum, center, and Boys State Chairman Donald Cabrol of the American Legion signed the three-year agreement Wednesday morning. About 350 young men from across the state will gather on the MSU Starkville Campus this summer to learn about state and local government and the electoral process.
