The next generation of civic leaders will be receiving a crash-course in how government runs in Portales.
The American Legion Boys & Girls State is a week-long immersive event for juniors heading into their senior year of high school, held at Eastern New Mexico University. During their residency at the college, students will have the opportunity to learn the varied protocols of governmental and electoral procedure.
Boys State will be held in late May and Girls State in early June.
