The Carroll County Student Government Association is accepting applications from current ninth- and 10th-grade students interested in serving as the student representative-elect on the county Board of Education for the 2013-14 school year.
The student representative is elected by the CCSGA for a two-year term. This year's student member is O'Reilly Miani, a senior at Francis Scott Key High School.
During the first year, the student representative-elect will shadow the current representative to learn the responsibilities of the position. The student representative attends all school board meetings and represents a student viewpoint on issues.
Additional information and an application packet are available on the CCPS website — http://www.carrollk12.org — under the heading, Resources for Students. Completed applications must be received by Jan. 4, 2013.
