Arkansas Boys State Governor Is HHS Student Richard Ware

By Staff, 06/3/21 8:01 PM

Following in the footsteps of such Hope notables as Mack McLarty, Mike Huckabee, and President Clinton, Hope High student Richard Ware has been elected “Governor” of this year’s Boys State.  Ware will be a senior this coming year in the Hope Public Schools.

Ware’s election and experience has been a little different than his predecessors.  Much of this years Boys State is virtual and Ware said much of his campaigning was over Zoom.  But he will be heading in person to the Arkansas State Capitol Friday to meet with Governor Asa Hutchinson.  Ware says it is an honor to follow so many reputable people into the office during Boys State.

In addition to his honors at Arkansas Boys State, Ware is headed to Governor’s School this summer to study music.  He’ll be heading to Arkansas Tech for the experience and will concentrate on music.  Ware can play the piano as well as saxophone and most percussion instruments.

After graduation, Ware plans to attend the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and major in Political Science.  He is the son of Adrienne Phillips Ware, a teacher at Hope High.

Our congratulations and best wishes go to this year’s Arkansas Boys State Governor Richard Ware of Hope!
