Buckeye Boys State's newest governor was sworn in Wednesday by Ohio Supreme Court Justice Sharon Kennedy.
Brent Knipper, of Frankfort, took the oath of office after being escorted to the Stroh Center stage at Bowling Green State University by two State Highway Patrol officers and surrounded by an honor guard of legionnaires. He was led in to the sound of bag pipes.
The newly elected Boys State governor said his administration has three main goals while in office this week: education, social reform and infrastructure improvement to stimulate the economy.
"Today's generation is often criticized for being lazy and uninterested in Ohio government," Knipper said
"I will lead this assembly into a new era and prove to our critics" we can meet the challenges, he said.
Each delegate, Knipper said, is a crucial element to the success of the week.
"We must operate as one to accomplish this platform together," he said.
Following his inauguration speech, the delegates joined together for a high-spirited rendition of "I'm Proud to be an American." Justice Kennedy linked arms with the newly elected Boys State judges on stage and proudly sung the lyrics.
Kennedy also addressed the delegates and challenged them to follow their moral compass, lead within their power, and to honor freedom and liberty.
