June 21, 2012By Don Sergent of Warren Central High School
Brett Riley, a senior-to-be at Warren Central High School, has been elected Lieutenant Governor of 2012 Kentucky Boys State, held June 17-22 at the Wendell H. Ford Regional Training Center in Greenville. Boys State is a program designed to train Kentucky youth in the fundamentals of good citizenship and governmental operations. It is not intended that the program take the place of the curriculum in civics or government as is taught in the schools of the Commonwealth. It is planned so participants may put into intensive practice the theories of American government through the actual operation of city, county and state offices, as organized under the plans of a mythical 51st state.
