TMECHS Student Selected for American Legion Boys State Program

TMECHS’s very own Roy Lopez has been selected to attend the American Legion Boys State Program!

It is a program that identifies itself as being designed to help students become part of the operation of local, county, and state government. Participants learn the rights, privileges, and responsibilities of franchised citizens through activities such as legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, choruses and recreational programs.

Roy will attend the program from June 27th to July 2nd virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions. Roy himself is excited to attend and grateful for the opportunity. He says, “I believe this opportunity will help develop my leadership skills, have a deeper understanding of our government, and become a better citizen overall.”

Congratulations Roy, we wish you luck!
