LA PLATA, Md.—Azeezat Adeleke, a rising senior at North Point High School, is the student member of the Board of Education of Charles County for the 2012-13 school year. 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.

As the Student Board Member, Adeleke will work with a student liaison committee throughout the school year. The following students were selected as members of the student liaison committee:

-- Amit Patel, Maurice J. McDonough High School, rising junior;

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.
