It is now time to select nominees for the Governor’s consideration for the next Student Member of the State Board of Education. Each public high school in Maryland is invited to nominate one student for this position. The student, appointed by the Governor, will serve a one‑year term on the State Board, July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021.
The student nominee must be:
• regularly enrolled in a public high school
• in good standing
• a junior or senior as of July 1, 2020 (meaning a current sophomore or junior)
The school nomination process may be an actual election within the student body, or the nomination might be the consensus of the Student Council or the Executive Board of the Student Council.
Schools should consider the most capable sophomore or junior who could ably serve in this position.
