Page 8 Lake Stevens Journal July 13, 2011 JOURNAL STAFF Five students represented Lake Ste- vens High School at the 2010 Boys State leadership conference held from June 13-19 on the Central Washington State University campus in Ellensburg. High-school juniors Vincent Bruscas, Charlie Hannigan, Alex Johnson, Nick Johnson, and Mackenzie Simon par- ticipated in the week-long simulation in government that is often called a leader- ship action program in practical citizen— ship. About 250 of the best students from schools around Washington attended “Evergreen Boys State" this year. All five LSHS students, along with the others, participated as citizens at the local, county, and state levels of govern- ment. The first election result early in the week announced Simon as mayor of one of the nine cities. This was exciting news to share with family back home. Bruscas had “a fantastic time run— ning for lieutenant governor," and then when he did not win, he “enjoyed being a house representative, being an officer to three committees, and enjoying time with others at Boys State." This involve- ment was in addition to the regular participation as a local, county, and state citizen. “I had a great time at Boys State,” exclaimed Alex Johnson. He and his brother Nick were each elected to the state supreme court. Hannigan was elected governor.
