King Philip High School Student Selected to Serve on MIAA Student Advisory Committee
WRENTHAM — Principal Lisa Mobley is pleased to announce that a King Philip Regional High School senior was selected this week to serve on the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) 2019-2020 Student Advisory Committee (SAC).
On Monday, Dec. 9, the MIAA announced that AJ Jaber was selected as one of 19 students throughout the state to serve as a SAC member.
Jaber was selected following an application and interview process after participating in the New England Student Leadership Conference (NESLC) in July and taking part in the MIAA Student Ambassador program.
Jaber, who is a member of the King Philip High School football team, represents District C, along with Emma Dahl from Foxborough High School and Liam Bennett of Milford High School.
The SAC is guided by MIAA Assistant Executive Director Phil Napolitano. Napolitano said in a statement, “To have the opportunity to work directly with these incredible student-leaders and gain perspective from their lens is something I have always cherished.”
Student Advisory Committee members attend seasonal meetings with the Educational Athletics Committee and help facilitate student and captain leadership workshops throughout the school year.
In addition, the students are asked to participate in various activities and provide feedback from a student’s perspective on how to improve MIAA Educational Athletic offerings.
The SAC members will participate in the upcoming Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summit on Jan. 13, 2020 at Framingham State University.
In addition, the 2020 New England Student Leadership Conference will be held July 15-18, 2020 at Worcester State University.
“I would like to congratulate AJ for being selected to serve on the Student Advisory Committee for the MIAA,” Principal Mobley said. “I am sure he will be an excellent representative for our school and I believe it is important for students to be able to have a voice of their own and this committee offered by the MIAA does just that.”
