Meets to Boys State

PAUL METTS

Palmetto Boys State Delegate

   Paul Metts has been chosen to represent the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools (SCAIHS) as a delegate to the 2019 session of Palmetto Boys State. 
  This year’s Palmetto Boys State will be held on the campus of Anderson University in Anderson, South Carolina, during the week of June 9 – 15.  Palmetto Boys State is sponsored by the American Legion.    
  The American Legion’s Palmetto Boys State program provides a unique forum for young men to learn about the American system of government and the political process by participating in a mock governmental system.  Paul and his fellow citizens at Palmetto Boys State will have the opportunity to run the city, county, and state governments for one week.  They will prepare speeches, compose party platforms, debate current issues, and vote for elected offices.  These experiences will help these young men to become contributing citizens and leaders of tomorrow.    
  Paul is the son of Alan and LeeAnn Metts.  His grandparents are George Ray and Dot Metts and George and Cathy DeLoache, all of Saluda.
