Kentucky Boys State is the premiere leadership and civics camp for young men who will become the leaders of tomorrow.
The program is among the most respected educational programs of government instruction for high school students, and is considered a highly regarded leadership training program.
The American Legion has operated the program since 1935, and the program was established in Kentucky in 1940.
At Boys State, participants are exposed to the rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities of a franchised citizen.
Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, training in various topics, assemblies, journalism and recreational programs.
American Legion Posts select juniors who apply to attend the program.
American Legion Post 82 is sponsoring Fitzgerald’s participation in the program.
