AHS students to give reports to school board

Published 10:27 am Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Seven Austin High School students have volunteered to become “members” of the Austin School Board.

The students, who applied and then were selected, meet twice a month before each board meeting — once as a student board and once with school board members Kathy Green and Mary Kleis — to discuss news and issues in their school. Two members will attend each meeting and give a report to the school board.

Participants this semester include: Jerome Green, grade 9; Robert Wahlert, Kelsey Fleming, Miles Edwards and Ben Bachmeier, grade 11; and Jay Wilson and James Thorson, grade 12.
