July 27 - Drake Smith - Meade High School, Rising 12th Grader

I am a rising senior at Meade High School and the former President of the Anne Arundel County NAACP Youth & College Division and currently the 47th Student Member of the Board.  I am enrolled in the IB Diploma Program. I ran on the promise of making real and meaningful change. To make that happen and be an effective Student Member of the Board of Education I want to make sure I know the problems affecting each of our student populations especially such a multifaceted one as the LGBTQ+ community. I hope this panel opens the door to more conversations so we start seeing the reality - LOVE IS LOVE.
