She will be sworn in to her position by Board of Education Chairman Roberta S. Wise at the June 12 meeting, which begins at 1 p.m.

Each liaison can apply as a candidate for the position of Student Board Member. Each candidate submits an essay regarding a student concern and a detailed possible solution.

The essays are evaluated and candidates are interviewed by a committee composed of students and advisors. The liaison with the highest combined score on the essay and the interview is named the Student Board Member.
