Missouri Boys State Staff

MBS 2010 Staff

The administrative staff, counseling staff, and athletic supervisors who are in charge of the individual phases of the program are trained leaders and experienced youth counselors who donate a week of their time as public service.

Each member of the staff is giving back to the program's participants the same excitement, inspiration and value, the Boys State program gave them when they were citizens. Our volunteers work hard each year to provide the citizens of Missouri Boys State the best experience possible.
