Matthew is continuing to advance at Arkansas Boys State this week! Way to Go!
Matthew Harper of Cherokee Village from Highland High School was elected as a State Senator for his congressional district at Arkansas Boys State 2022, a summer leadership and civic engagement experience sponsored by the American Legion.
Harper was elected by his peers during district elections on Tuesday, May 31, as part of the 81st annual session of Arkansas Boys State, where students build a mock government structure, including eight different congressional districts each with four senators and 12 representatives.
"Being elected as State Senator is quite the special opportunity for Matthew and his fellow legislators," said David Saterfield, director of instruction for Arkansas Boys State. "He'll get an up-close and personal look at the legislative process with his own state legislators leading him through the process."
On Wednesday, Harper will meet with Arkansas legislators to learn more about the legislative branch and process. As part of their meeting, Harper will join his fellow Arkansas Boys State senators and representatives in creating mock legislation that they will debate and vote upon at the state capitol on Friday.
"I'm excited to see what ideas Matthew and his fellow legislators bring to the House and Senate floors on Friday," Saterfield said. "I hope these Arkansas Boys State legislators take it all in when they're at the capitol. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
Harper is one of more than 400 students from throughout the state attending Arkansas Boys State at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. Students are mock citizens in eight different counties and congressional districts, sixteen cities, and two political parties.
Tuesday at Arkansas Boys State also welcomed the beginning of campaigning for statewide office, including the office of governor.
