JONESBORO – Christian Walls of Little Rock, the elected Arkansas Boys State governor, has been awarded the new Boys State Scholarship and will attend Arkansas State University this fall. The scholarship is provided by A-State for the Governor of Boys State or Girls State, should that individual choose to attend Arkansas State. The award covers tuition, fees, room and board and is renewable each year provided the student completes 30 credit hours at A-State with a 3.25 grade point average. Students must be enrolled in 15 hours at the university on the 11th class day of each semester. Additional selection criteria include scholarship, community involvement and leadership qualities.
