Gov. Phil Bryant addresses Boys State 2012 delegates

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant addressed the more than 300 delegates to American Legion Boys State Tuesday at Bennett Auditorium on The University of Southern Mississippi Hattiesburg campus. Boys State is a weeklong program designed to help rising high school seniors learn about the mechanics of the American political system through participation in mock campaigns, elections, crafting legislation and hearing from elected officials about their experience working as public servants. Prior to Bryant’s speech, the delegates participated in a pep rally to get ready for the governor’s visit. (University Communications photo by David Tisdale)
