RFHS students attend statewide leadership conference
River Falls High School student Joseph Gehler hasn’t even turned 18 but has already led a successful campaign and been elected as mayor.
He attended Badger Boys State last month at Ripon College in Ripon, Wisc., where he was mayor of a town called Rusk in Carpenter County.
“I tried to make friends with everyone there,” said Gehler. “Because of that I was elected to be chairman of my party caucus and immediately following that elected to be mayor.”
