Stephanie was chosen by her peers to represent students from the district’s seven high schools.
“I’m honored I was chosen,” she said. “I’m glad people are trusting me with this huge role.”
Stephanie will attend OUHSD board meetings and serve as a liaison between student government representatives and the school board.
“I want everyone to be informed and know what is going on,” she said. “I don’t want there to be any miscommunication between the board and schools.”
Student government has been a priority for Stephanie throughout high school. She has been involved with the school’s associated student body for three years, serving as freshman and sophomore class president and ASB secretary.
And, as a senior, she will serve as the ACHS associated student body president next school year.
In addition to participating in student government, Stephanie has been a member of the American Cancer
Society’s ACHS chapter and helped raise funds for the annual Relay For Life. She also helps in her youth group at Padre Serra Parish.
She wants to pursue a career in cosmetology and hopes to open her own business. She believes her experience in student government will serve her well in life.
“This is going to prepare me for the real world because I’m going to have to express what each school is feeling, and it’s not just about my school but every school,” Stephanie said. “Everyone’s thoughts and feelings are going to need to be taken into consideration.”
