Bryant met with Keenum after speaking to more than 370 rising high school seniors participating in Boys State this week on the MSU campus. Since 1939, Mississippi American Legion Boys State has served as the nation's premier program for teaching young men how government works, developing leadership skills and nurturing an appreciation for the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.
