SEF Student Reps Recognized!

Melissa Karapostoles and Wolves Cheerleader, Annika Lawrence

Melissa Karapostoles and Annika Lawrence have been recognized by the Sequim Education Foundation
(SEF) board of directors for their outstanding service as Student Representatives. The foundation seats a representative from both Sequim High School and Sequim Middle School on their board of directors to insure the student point of view is considered in all of their planning and decisions. Lawrence served on the board during the 2008 - 2009 school year. She will be attending the high school next year, so her position will be filled with another middle school student.
The all-volunteer unpaid SEF board of directors is made up of nine elected citizens, the Superintendent of Schools, a member of the Sequim School Board, and student representatives from SMS and SHS. Student Reps have an equal vote with all other members of the board, so they must be prepared to consider all SEF business matters from planning fundraising events and determining investment strategies to making grants awarding scholarships.
"It's like serving on the board of any large corporation," President Dick Hughes said, "these young people must come prepared to ask intelligent questions and make good decisions at every meeting."
Sequim Education Foundation is the community's own local non-profit charity supporting Sequim's public school system.
