Join me in congratulating Rachel Lin who has been elected the new Student Member of the Board for the 2015–2016 school year. Lin is currently a junior at Howard High School.
Rachel brings leadership experience from several elected positions as part of Howard High School’s Student Government Association as well as several other student organizations at the school.
She is very involved in community service, working with the Special Olympics and educating her community about domestic violence and drug abuse through HopeWorks and HCDrugFree. She also interns at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
We’re excited to welcome Rachel to the Board and look forward to her contributions to the Howard County Public School System.
I’d also like to commend Arjun Sharma for running a strong campaign. We know we’ll continue to see great things from you as well.
