MEDWAY — Superintendent Armand Pires and Principal John Murray are pleased to recognize the members of the 2022-2023 Student Advisory Board for their ongoing collaboration with the Medway School Committee.
The Student Advisory Board includes the following Medway High School students: freshman Claire Mullen, sophomore Palak Yadav, junior Ella Vargas and seniors Destiny Ojukwu, Noah Der Garabedian and Charlie McKeown.
Under state law, School Committees must meet regularly with an elected body of students. Medway’s Student Advisory Board meets with a member of the School Committee once per month during the school year. The students serve as the voice of their peers, gathering information regarding the concerns and needs of the study body to share with the School Committee.
Yadav also serves as an ex officio, non-voting member of the School Committee. In this role, she attends each Medway School Committee meeting and is able to ask questions and offer feedback from the student perspective.
“After the disruption we all experienced with the COVID-19 pandemic, the School Committee is thrilled to engage with our students in a more active and dynamic way this year,” School Committee Chair Susan Dietrich said. “Students are central to the work that we do, and we value the perspective they bring.”
Added Principal Murray, “The student voice is important to the continued progress and success of Medway High School and the district as a whole, and the Student Advisory Board is a great opportunity for students to share their feedback with the School Committee and have an impact on issues that affect them.”
