Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick Addresses 2018 Texas Boys State at Texas Capitol


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Patrick addressed over a thousand young men in the Texas Capitol today who are attending 2018 Texas Boys State, a program of American Legion Boys State.

“It is inspiring to see these young men stepping up to the plate to learn about the duties and responsibilities of citizenship and public service. These young leaders are already demonstrating our ‘Texas Strong’ spirit and I am confident they will continue their service to our state going forward — making Texas an even greater state in the years to come.”

American Legion Boys State is a participatory program where each student becomes a part of the operation of his local, county, and state government. The American Legion Auxiliary also sponsors Girls State, which will be held later this month.
