Two Garland ISD juniors selected for prestigious program

ROWLETT, TX – January 4, 2022 — Two Rowlett High School students have been selected to attend one of the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students.

Ryan Roberge and Hayden Shepherd were nominated by their campus to attend the American Legion Texas Boys State program, an opportunity just 1,100 young men receive each year. Over winter break, the juniors were notified that they were accepted into the program that aims to shape the leaders of tomorrow. Roberge and Shepherd will learn and grow through the hands-on, week-long program this June at the University of Texas at Austin. Learn more about Texas Boys State on the program’s website.
