The last full day of Cornhusker Boys’ State includes a trip to the state capitol for the Boys State Unicameral Legislature. Traditionally, sessions are held in the historic Warner Chambers. Due to construction in 2022, the session was held in Hearing Room 1525.
The Cornhusker Boys’ State Supreme Court held hearings in the Supreme Court chambers at the Nebraska state capitol. This mock trial is the capstone of the Boys’ State judicial program.
Vikram S Menon from Omaha’s Millard North High School was elected as the 80th Governor of American Legion Cornhusker Boys’ State. Vikram is a citizen of the Boys’ State town of Gettysburg.
Menon opposed Omaha Central’s Joshua King in the general election. King proudly represented the Boys’ State town of Bataan.
Congratulations to both of these fine young men!
A highlight of Boys State is the traditional Wednesday joint session with Cornhusker Girls State. The atmosphere is electric and the band and chorus provide excellent entertainment. This year, Governor Pete Ricketts was a keynote speaker at the event. In addition, Husker volleyball coach John Cook and Husker women’s basketball coach Amy Williams also shared a message with our delegates.
