For the next three years, the University of Missis- sippi will host the Ameri- can Legion's Boys State, which allows young men from across Mississippi to perform the duties of state and local governments dur- ing a week long event de- signed "to develop tomor- row's informed, responsible citizens." Boys State is set for the week of May 29, 2016, and again in the spring of 2017 and 2018. Delegates will stay on campus and be able to take advantage of the many resources of UM's departments and pro- grams. The young men will learn how city, county and state governments function through simulating those jobs. "The citizenship instruc- tion provided by Boys State to the youth of Mississippi continues to play a leading role in the identification and growth of our future leaders, and we are excited to be a part of that leader- ship development," Interim UM Chancellor Morris Stocks said. Stocks said he is grateful to Brandi Hephner LaBanc, vice chancellor for stu- dent affairs, and her team in leading efforts to bring Boys State to UM. Hephner LaBanc said the university is the perfect setting for the event. "We are thrilled about hosting Boys State and see it as another opportunity to serve Mississippians," Hephner LaBanc said. "We believe our campus will be a perfect setting for them to meaningfully engage, learn and become empowered leaders." The Illinois American Le- gion created the program in 1934, and it was adopted by the national organiza- tion in 1945. The goal of the program is to show that de- mocracy needs both an in- telligent citizenry and also a moral, honest and impar- tial administration that is responsive to the will of the people. The nonpartisan program is open to young men who are high school juniors and it is conducted each year across the country through each State's Department of the American Legion. It's estimated that more than 28,000 young men annu- ally participate in the civic workshops. The gathering is designed to be a virtual 51st state with a constitution, statutes and ordinances constructed by its citizens to govern themselves. Participants are required to review their knowledge about political workings of state and local government, but they also perform the same duties as actual officeholders in the real world. "I am delighted that Ole Miss will host Boys State for the next three years," said William Gottshall, executive director of the UM Trent Lott Leadership Institute. "Boys State is known for developing young leaders within the state - a mission we share."
