HENNESSEY JUNIORS LEARN ABOUT BOYS STATE

Jared Harrison from the Kingfisher American Legion visited Hennessey High School junior boys, Tuesday, February 7th to give a program on Boys State. Oklahoma American Legion Boys State is an intense week of non-partisan leadership, government, and patriotism sponsored by the American Legion of Oklahoma. 

There hasn’t been a delegate from Hennessey since 2015. The Hennessey Masonic Lodge has stepped up to help sponsor any junior who wishes to attend. The cost to attend is $299.00. It will be held at Rogers State University in Claremore.  The program will be a 3-hour college credit and any boy that completes the course will be eligible for a $1200.00 scholarship to attend Rogers State University.
