Caiden Ogden

Bio: Caiden Ogden (he/him) is a 9th grader at Allegany High School in Allegany County. In the 6th grade, he accidentally applied for regional second vice president and surprisingly won.

Caiden is currently Allegany County Association of Student Council’s (ACASC) Secretary/Treasurer where he plans to “make bank” by designing shirts, graphic designs, and fundraising. He has always loved advocating for students who don’t have a voice. During his term as Division One Liaison, he wants to increase Allegany, Garrett, and Washington County’s representation. He would also like to shout out Emily Michael, Kara Kennell, and Tammy Twigg.
