Alcorn Central High School student Austin Yagar recently attended the Mississippi Boys State Convention at Ole Miss.
Yagar will be drum major for the ACHS Pride Marching Band in the upcoming school year. He is a member of the Beta Club and has received recognition for an ACT score of 26.
Mississippi Boys State teaches delegates about government, leadership and service and helps them put those concepts into practice.
Officials thanked Gary Briggs and the American Legion for helping make this opportunity available.
