Guest Speakers Are Well Received At ALMBS
Monday nightâ€™s guest orators and WVâ€™s Secretary of State have both been met with positive reception and standing ovations. Oliver Luck, Athletic Director of the State, spoke initially during Mondayâ€™s assembly with strong views on activism, stating â€œNothing is achieved without a lot of hard workâ€. After a respectable applause, South Carolina Congressman Bob Englis advocated the importance of change and power. Following a brief demonstration and some wise words, Mondayâ€™s assembly was dismissed.
During Tuesdayâ€™s lunch, Boys State was quite privileged and honored to welcome Secretary of State Natalie Tennant to speak for our benefit. Citing everything from West Virginiaâ€™s history, her own conflicts and triumphs, and the correlations all of the ALMBS citizens share with our wonderful stateâ€™s accomplishments, Mrs. Tennant was very efficient and well spoken. Mountaineer Boys State thanks all of the speakers for their time.
