Brent McNeel returns to the school board this year as the senior student representative and junior Lucia Isenberg is joining him as the junior class representative.

As the student representatives at school board meetings, McNeel and Isenberg inform the board of events and issues of importance to the students at the high school.

According to acting Superintendent Leslie Estep, both exhibit hard work and dedication and have proved to be great choices for their positions.

The student representatives do not get to vote on issues like the rest of the board, but they still have an important role of keeping the board informed.

I just really like the fact that our school allows students to have a representative that can put the student’s interests first. I am very grateful for the opportunity to represent my peers”

— Senior Brent McNeel

McNeel served as the junior representative last year, so he has some experience. He says that this year isn’t different from last, but as a senior he does get to talk about more things.

“I just really like the fact that our school allows students to have a representative that can put the student’s interests first. I am very grateful for the opportunity to represent my peers,” said McNeel.

McNeel has also been showing Isenberg the ropes along the way.

According to Isenberg, she applied for student board representative as a way to contribute to her school. The opportunity also provides her with leadership experience. The school board is a great example of how a local government works and being a part of it looks good on a job or college application.

“Overall, I feel truly blessed to be given this opportunity to serve the school and grateful that we have such great people involved with our school,” said Isenberg.

The board appreciates the time and effort the students put into this responsibility.

“The board has enjoyed having Brent and Lucia, and the past student representatives, because they bring in the student perspective of the events and activities that are happening,” said Estep.

Ms. Estep also complemented how well McNeel and Isenberg work together to provide a cohesive report.

“I think [Luica] is very qualified for the position and I think she is the perfect choice for the job. I look forward to working with her,” said McNeel.

“Brent has a very respectful, yet authoritative way of addressing the board. He exudes confidence without being overbearing. He has set a great example and I’m hoping I can become as successful and effective as he is,” said Isenberg.

Any student who has a question or a concern that they would like to share with the board through their student representatives can do so by speaking to either McNeel or Isenberg.
