Thomas Davies, a Wakeland High School senior, was recognized at the Denton County Commissioners Court on September 21, 2021, for being an American Legion Boys Nation Senator. Davies was the guest of Commissioner Precinct 1 Ryan Williams.

Davies was selected by American Legion Peter J Courcy Post 178. He, along with eighteen other delegates, attended the 2021 Texas Boys State. Davies was also selected as a senator from the more than six hundred Texas Boys State Statesmen to attend the 2021 American Legion Boys Nation in Washington, DC.  Davies was one of one hundred Boys Nation senators selected from more than 20,000 Boys State Statesmen from across our great nation.

In Washington, senators received an education on the structure and function of federal government, introduced legislation, organized party platforms and conventions, and participated in the election of officers. The week of government training also combined lectures and forums with visits to federal agencies, institutions, memorials, and historical spots in and around Washington.

Judge Andy Eads read the proclamation which was approved by Commissioners Ryan Williams, Ron Marchant, Bobbie J. Mitchell, and Dianne Edmondson. The proclamation recognized Davies for his outstanding achievements and extended best wishes for continued success, happiness, and a lifetime of honor and service.
