Badger State Boys
Sheboygan South High School staff has selected two male students to represent the school at the annual Badger Boys State Program this June at Ripon College. Zachary Resch, son of John and Stacia Resch, and Lue Xiong, son of Seng and Yang Mee Lor Xiong, were selected from their junior class for this activity.

The selection was made by the staff based on the criteria of leadership, interest in government and citizenship, character, fitness, participation in extracurricular activities and grades.

Resch hopes the "experience will be enlightening and open the door to an even higher level of curiosity and interest in our political system and those around the world."

Xiong's hope is that Badger Boy State will "build myself up and to stretch my mind by a new experience."

Badger Boys provides a working knowledge of local and state government and an opportunity for an experience as self-governing citizens share experiences that demonstrate the duties, privileges, and responsibilities of a good citizen.
