Garrett Little, a senior at Seymour High School, participated in the American Legion Boys State of Missouri from June 15 through June 23 on the campus of the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg.
During his week at Boys State, Little was a citizen of Ingle City and held the positions of city council member and delegate to the state convention in Ward II.
He also attended Commerce School while at Boys State.
Little was selected to attend Boys State this summer based on his leadership, citizenship, academics and character during his junior year at Seymour High School.
The son of Brenda Goodman and Jack Little, he was spon-sored by American Legion Post No. 639 in Springfield.
Boys State is a pure democracy in that all citizens may vote and are eligible to hold office. The program is designed to educate and train Missouri’s young leaders in functional citizenship, leadership and government.
Nearly 1,000 student leaders from across Missouri build an entire state government in a single week at the event.
