A student at Presbyterian Christian High School will represent Mississippi at the upcoming Boys Nation in Washington, D. C.
Jonathan Burks was elected as a delegate Saturday during the final day of the annual Boys State at Mississippi State University.
370 students from across the Magnolia State participated in that week-long event, which teaches incoming seniors how government works.
Two delegates from each state will make the trip to the nation's capital to take part in Boys Nation, which runs from July 19-27.
