Sage Snider

Sage T. Snider

Elected by the Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) to serve as the 2007-8 student member of the Board, Sage Snider is a senior at Severna Park High School.  While consistently excelling in a challenging course load, Sage has played leading roles in many theatrical productions and is president of her school’s Model UN Club.  Also an accomplished violinist in styles ranging from classical to bluegrass, Sage is not only the concertmistress of her school orchestra, but has also played in the Maryland All-State Orchestra and “Side By Side” with the Baltimore Symphony.

A recipient of the Girl Scout Gold Award for leadership and community service, Sage has been an advocate for well-rounded education and students rights since first testifying before the county Board of Education as a fifth grade student.  Since then she has held several CRASC offices and served on various AACPS committees.  She is particularly proud of creating and fundraising for an annual CRASC leadership scholarship.  Sage was also one of two students selected to represent Maryland in the 46th Annual United States Senate Youth Program in recognition of her “scholarship and demonstrated qualities of leadership.”

Aware that the nearly 74,000 students of AACPS are fortunate to have a student board member with full voting rights representing their interests, Sage is committed to helping empower students. She hopes to increase the use and usefulness of the interactive student website (, which gives students across the county an accessible way to discuss school issues.

Sage’s future plans include attending a liberal arts college, graduate school, and, ultimately, continuing to work on behalf of the arts and education.
