Homegrown Alabamians to Address Boys State

Leaders local to Alabama make a huge contribution to our program. Speaking next week will be several Alabamians who have made a difference across the state, country, and globe. Our speakers’ lineup will include:

Former Supreme Court Justice from the island nation of Palau, Ashby Pate; former US Congressman and current Chief of Staff for the Governor, Jo Bonner; Former Executive Director of the Business Council of Alabama, Katie Britt; and Alabama Boys State alum, Josh Carpenter, who is a Rhodes Scholar and President & CEO of Southern Research in Birmingham.

Two Boys State traditions will also continue, when staff member Clint Usher addresses our students on Monday night, and Judge John England presides over our Boys State Inauguration Wednesday evening.

*Please note: Parents and guests are not permitted to attend Boys State sessions in person. Please follow our social media and check our website for livestreaming of select sessions, as well as photos and videos throughout the week.
