An orientation was held for Post 178 Texas Boys State delegates and their parents last evening in the Frisco ISD board room. Larry Wilhelm, the Texas Boys State Committee Chairman, scheduled the event and led the presentation.
Speakers included Jacob Pavlasek, a graduating senior from Reedy High School who attended Texas Boys State in 2021. Charles Ansley, a native Texan from Amarillo and retired senior manager in the computer financial industry who attended Texas Boys State in 1952. Both speakers shared their unique perspectives, experiences, and advice. Detailed information requirements and due dates were also shared with the parents and a helpful question and answer session followed.
Chairman Wilhelm thanked the delegates and their parents for attending and said, “We are delighted that this year’s session in Austin will be face-to-face, because for the last two years the sessions were virtual because of COVID.”
