Fuqua School’s representatives to Virginia Boys State are Brad Davis and Curtis Rogers, with alternates Robert Burns and Nicholas Davis. The 74th session of Virginia Boys State will be held this summer at Radford University. The students are first nominated by the Fuqua faculty, then chosen through an interview process conducted by the local American Legion and evaluated based on their leadership abilities, interest in government, service to their school and community and academics.
