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.

Emma MurphyEmma Murphy's history of leadership and advocacy in school and community are impressive and will serve her well as the Junior Student Representative. She continues to achieve outstanding grades in rigorous classes while holding class and club office roles, competing in athletics, and performing on the stage through drama and choir. Emma's commitment to sharing with the public about Type 1 Diabetes has also lead to being an ambassador for JDRF and Beat the Bridge. In middle school she won the Prudential Spirit of Community Service Award for the state of Washington as a direct result of her work with JDRF. Her future goals include attending the University of Washington and then becoming a film and television actress while also advocating for the JDRF, which aims to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Teachers describe Emma as "a funny, energetic, enthusiastic teenager, who also happens to be working incredibly hard to make the world a better place."


Peyton Brueher

Foster Barnhart is committed to advocating for students throughout the District through his previous position as Junior Board Representative and now Senior 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.

We welcome Foster and Emma and look forward to their contributions through the 2018-19 school year!
