John David Meadows Represents PCA as Boys State Representative
John David Meadows, rising Prattville Christian Academy senior, was selected to represent the school at the 2019 session of the American Legion Auxiliary Alabama Boys State earlier this summer.
Boys State is an 82-year old youth leadership program which offers a one-of-a-kind experience to rising high school senior male students in the State of Alabama. Students are chosen based on the demonstration of the following characteristics: leadership, hard work, strong morals, and motivation in school and community activities.
At Boys State, student delegates become citizens of an imaginary state, taking part in a mock political life through campaigning for and electing officials. In addition to establishing a mock government, delegates got the opportunity to hear from state elected officials, business and civic leaders. All participants acquire a deeper understanding and regard for two of the nation’s benefits: freedom and democracy. During his time, Meadows ran for the office of Lieutenant Governor.
“My experience impacted the way I view life and go about each day,” said John David Meadows. “I strive to live a more positive and outgoing life.”
