Texas Boys State
Ryan Brands, Lovejoy High School senior, graduates as one of the 1,100 future leaders that assembled at University of Texas in Austin, for the prestigious program sponsored by the American Legion, Department of Texas, known as Texas Boys State. Brands was elected to the Texas House of Representatives and was also elected as a platform delegate. He also raced in the running events during the week.
This year, Texas Boys State delegates made history when they voted for the first time to secede from the union! Ryan said "My experience at Boys State has given me a new disposition on how I want to be involved, wherever I go, in politics. It has helped show me the importance of getting involved in my community and local politics because it does not make sense to let someone, I do not know, make laws that affect me."
Begun in 1935, Boys State is a unique program that educates future leaders about government, civics, and patriotism in a "learn by doing" environment. Each delegate has just finished his junior year of high school and was hand-picked by teachers, counselors, and local American Legion posts throughout Texas to attend this one week seminar.
During the week, the delegates were evenly split into fictional parties of the Nationalist and Federalists. Each party drafted party platforms, elected party officials, nominated candidates via primary elections, and contested a general election against the rival party and its candidates. The delegates ran for many kinds of offices including state, district, county, and city offices. Those elected to the House of Representatives and Senate spent the week drafting, debating, and passing bills on a wide range of social and economic issues.
This year, the delegates heard from more than 40 distinguished guest speakers, ranging from Texas Railroad Commissioner Christi Craddick and State Board of Education member Tom Maynard, to several state legislators and former San Antonio Mayor Ed Garza.
Brands recalls, "People told me going into Boys State that it was completely what I would make of it. So accordingly I took a head-first attitude and stepped out of my comfort level. I went for 2 political positions and got them both, in addition, I fought and debated for my beliefs to be heard in the party. Looking back on the Texas Boys State experience, I am glad I made the choices I did. It was a great learning event that I would recommend for anyone who has a political passion and wants to get more involved. I feel greatly honored to have had the pleasure of attending Texas Boys State. I would like to thank everyone who helped make it possible for me to take part.
