The Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) announced on its Twitter page (@CRASC_Online) that three 11th grade students have been named finalists for the 2021-2022 student member on the Board of Education of Anne Arundel County. The students, selected from a field of seven applicants, are:
Bunmi Omisore, Arundel High School
Fletcher Port, Severna Park High School
Natalie Smith, Broadneck High School
The Student Member on the Board of Education (SMOB) election is sponsored by CRASC. The student member is appointed by the Governor, serves a one-year term during his or her senior year of high school, and receives an $8,000 college scholarship. Anne Arundel’s student member is the only one in the nation on a local Board of Education with full voting rights.
The finalists will take part in a debate broadcast on AACPS’ YouTube channel at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 26, 2021. CRASC delegates will vote for a candidate in late April or early May.
Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) is the representative organization of all students enrolled in the secondary schools of AACPS, created to develop leadership skills, promote good sportsmanship, and to initiate improvements and activities for the general good of AACPS students.
State law recognizes the Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) as the governing body that annually selects the Student Member of the Board of Education (SMOB). In addition to that important function, CRASC provides the student perspective at Board of Education meetings and other venues. In addition to CRASC, there are many other opportunities for student leadership in Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) including, but not limited to, the Superintendent’s Teen Advisory, SMOB, and school based student government associations.
