• The Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) announced on its Twitter page (@CRASC_Online) today that three 11th grade students have been named finalists for the 2020-2021 student member on the Board of Education of Anne Arundel County.  The students, selected from a field of six applicants, are:

    Conor Curran, Old Mill High School

    Princess Merritt, Meade High School

    Drake Smith, Meade 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 election to determine the candidate whose name will be forwarded to the governor for appointment will take place later this month or early next month.

    CRASC’s constitution and bylaws call for high schools and middle schools in the county to be allotted a predetermined number of delegates, based on each school’s enrollment, at the election. Delegates will represent student government, the arts, athletics, and other extracurricular activities.

    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.                                                      AACPS Regulation: JCA-RA – REPRESENTATIVE STUDENT LEADERSHIP

     

    If you're a middle or high school student in Anne Arundel County Public Schools and this seems to be of interest to you, please join us at one of our meetings!
