AHS Sophomores Jaida Mason and Cooper Nichols were sworn in as student board representatives to the Anacortes School Board on Thursday, May 16.


Student board representatives serve a two-year commitment during their junior and senior years. They are expected to attend all regular board meetings and site visits, occasional special events and conferences, and also have opportunities to meet other leaders and elected officials throughout their term. While the student representatives don’t have official voting authority, student voice is an important and an integral part of the board’s deliberations.


“Our student representatives help us better understand how our decisions directly impact our students,” said Bobbilyn Hogge, school board president. “Their input is invaluable, and we appreciate the time and commitment they bring to their role.”


Both students expressed an interest in representing student voice and learning different perspectives. Mason is involved in Track & Field and the National Honors Society. Nichols is on the swim team and involved with the Anacortes Mountain Bike Racing program.


Mason and Nichols join continuing student representatives Grace Hill and Carson Lindholm. Graduating seniors Rafka Daou and Alyssa Watson are completing their two-year terms.
