Trent Kaiser, from Eagle Point High School has been elected to serve a term of one year on the Executive Board of the Oregon Association of Student Councils. The elections took place at the Annual Fall Conference in Seaside, where a group of over 1400 students from over 100 high schools were in attendance.
As an executive board member Trent will represent the Southern Oregon Region and join a group of 10 other youth Board members, and ten adult Board members from around the state. Trent’s duties include planning and presiding over two statewide conferences, communicating with schools in his region, and participating in policy decisions for the association, which was founded in 1951.
The Oregon Association of Student Councils serves middle and high schools around the state, providing conferences, workshops and summer leadership camps designed to heighten student leadership development. The group also participates in statewide service projects.
"These student Board members are extremely valuable to our association. These students are also outstanding leaders in their own school and community. They each bring their own unique perspective to our statewide association," states Nancy Moen, OASC Program Director.
