Student Board Representatives
In February 2010, the board implemented Policy 1200 which approved the addition of two student representatives to the board of directors. The role of the representatives is to provide student insight and perspective to the board; serve as liaisons to the high school students; and report to the students about the work of the district and the board of directors. Below are our current representatives.
Foster Barnhart is committed to advocating for students throughout the District through his position as Junior Board Representative. After an appearance in front of the Board to encourage the adoption of Chromebooks for student use, Foster was inspired to continue advocating for students and positive experiences. Teachers describe Foster as talented, respectful and supportive. One of his teachers remarked, “He is positive in every situation, even when circumstances are less than ideal.” Demonstrating care for the community and showing initiative are imperative to Foster. His future plans are to attend the University of Washington and then pursue a career in law.
Peyton Brueher‘s desire to work with people earned her a leadership role as the Senior Board Representative. Her outstanding commitment to academics and volunteering are an asset. She describes herself as an outgoing people-person who is a friend to nearly everyone in her class. Peyton is a member of the leadership class and a lacrosse player for the school and a community league. Teachers describe her as talented, determined and an effective communicator. Peyton’s future goals are to attend a university in California, play collegiate level lacrosse, and become an orthodontist. Her future aspirations are remarkable as is her determination to be successful.
We welcome Peyton and Foster and look forward to their contributions through the 2017-18 school year!
