Since 1934, each club within Missouri has sponsored an outstanding sophomore from local high schools to Jefferson City the second Tuesday of every April. This project promotes good citizenship and enables the students to see our state government in action. Students meet their legislators, tour the Capitol, Governor’s Mansion, and Supreme Court. The Ste. Genevieve Club sponsors a sophomore student from each of the local high schools.
