Three West Virginia high school students selected to serve as student representatives to the West Virginia Board of Education will have the opportunity to see government in action.
Luke Massey, a senior at Preston County High School, will fill the student position in December, January and February, according to a news release from the West Virginia Department of Education. Aishwarya Saluja, a senior at Hedgesville High School in Berkeley County, will serve in March, April and May. Blake Humphrey, a junior at Wheeling Park High School in Ohio County, will take the post in September, October and November 2013.
The state board launched its student representative project in 2007 in an effort to promote civic awareness, garner teen input and give high school students the opportunity to see government in action.
Students wishing to be considered for the board's program must complete an application, obtain parental permission and submit letters of recommendation and a transcript.
