BRODIE GOODWIN AND JOSEPH LEWIS WILL REPRESENT MHS AT BOYS STATE Magnolia High School juniors, Brodie Goodwin and Joseph Lewis were nominated to represent their community and school at Arkansas Boys State 2024, an immersive leadership and civic engagement experience sponsored by the American Legion. The local sponsor for Brodie Goodwin is Farmers Bank & Trust Co. and Joseph Lewis is sponsored locally by Peoples Bank. They will join more than 565 young men from 190 high schools attending the program's 83rd session at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway from May 26-31. The program's 2024 enrollment marks its largest class of young men in seven years. "Arkansas Boys State is a legacy program that has produced remarkable local, state, national and international leaders," said Lloyd Jackson, executive director of Arkansas Boys State. During their week at Arkansas Boys State, Goodwin and Lewis will be assigned a political party, city, and county. They will administer, from the ground up, a mock government as if it were real: run for office, draft and pass legislation, solve municipal challenges and engage constituents. "This year's remarkable growth speaks to how this program is playing a life-changing role in the lives of the young men who join us year after year," said Jackson. "We're thrilled that they are joining us and will experience this once-in-a-lifetime leadership opportunity in just a few weeks." The week's activities, including keynote speakers, general assemblies, and election speeches, will be streamed live by Arkansas PBS on their Arkansas Citizens Access Network: https://www.myarkansaspbs.org/arcan.
