First off I would like to say thank you to the VFW Post 4240 for sponsoring me to go to Boys State.

First off I would like to say thank you to the VFW Post 4240 for sponsoring me to go to Boys State. I would like to thank each member of the post for putting forth the funds to send me to Boys State.

I had an amazing time while I was there and I learned many things that helped build my character like integrity, communication, respect, confidence, commitment, intuition, and most of all leadership.

While I was there I held positions as Assistant Athletic Director and Bradley County Sheriff. As Assistant Athletic Director I helped organize people into their athletics for each day. Then as Bradley County Sheriff I made county ordinances and enforced the law if two cities which make Bradley County. I enforced over 120 people in the county.

Also while I was there I made many new friends from across the state of Missouri that I still keep in contact with today.

Again I would just like to say thank you for sponsoring me to go on this amazing experience. I know I represented Monroe City very well and I took pride in where I came from.

Thank you.
