Congratulations to the Ray-Pec High School students nominated to attend Missouri Boys State in June.
Several community organizations are paying the fees ($400 or $300) for students to attend. Thanks to the Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation, Peculiar Area Chamber of Commerce, Raymore-Peculiar Sunrise Optimist Club, Community Bank of Raymore, and Belton American Legion Post #488 for their generous support. Each of these organizations is sponsoring one boy and one girl to participate.
Chosen to represent Ray-Pec at Boys State (from left): Trent Oberlander, Alec Rath, Shane Martin, Derek Beauchamp, Austin Gardiner (alternate), Brandon Rayos (alternate), and William Greble.
Both events take place on the campus of the University of Central Missouri. Missouri Boys State is from June 16-23 and Missouri Girls State is June 24-30.
