The DeKalb County Fair Board voted in the newest and youngest fair board member, 18 year old, Matt Boss, during their recent meeting. Matt has been a part of the Youth Fair Board and will now take on the responsibility of managing the youth board as an official fair board member. Matt is a DeKalb County High School Senior, DCHS football player, a member of First Baptist Church in Alexandria, and is an eager community volunteer.
"We are glad that someone as young as Matt is taking an interest in volunteering to be on the board. I think that it needs to be acknowledged and I think a lot of him for wanting to do it. I hope there are more where he came from," said fair board member, Mike Williams.
Matt will begin his official duties with the board in November 2012.
