Two Students Represent CHS at Louisiana Boys State
Davis Polito and Chase Brouillette represented Catholic High at Louisiana Boys State at Northwestern State University. While at Boys State, students created a íÍ51st Stateíñ which they would hold elections and govern themselves.
Brouillette was elected Speaker Pro Tempore for the House of Representatives. íÍWhat I took back from it was a better understanding of how our government works and some memorable moments were growing close to many people from all over Louisiana in the short span of a week,íñ said Brouillette.
Polito was the keynote speaker for the nationalist party, which means he was second for his partyí´s nomination, and was also elected parish party chairman and mayor. íÍOverall it was a great experience. The late nights working on not only my speeches but my fellow citizensí´ speeches will not soon be forgotten. Although I didn’t achieve what I wanted (governor) when it was all said and done the experience of running was better than winning could have been,íñ said Polito.
