Ferndale School Board members have selected Ferndale High School sophomore Avneet Pannu to serve as a student representative on the Ferndale School Board for the next two years. Avneet was sworn in at the May 28, 2019 school board meeting.
Five students applied for the position. Student Noah Semu will remain on the School Board for the 2019-2020 School Year after serving on the Board during this most recent school year.
Ferndale School Board President Dr. Kevin Erickson thanks all of the Ferndale High School student applicants, “I want to extend my appreciation to our student applicants. It was a pleasure to meet each of them through this process. We are fortunate to have such incredible young people here in Ferndale. I know I speak for my fellow board members when I say ‘thank-you’ to each student who applied this year.”
Ferndale School District Superintendent Dr. Linda Quinn welcomes Avneet, “The relationship with our student board members is a highlight of my work,” said Dr. Quinn. “In my experience, our student representatives bring a unique energy and perspective and show us what is most important to our students. I know from meeting Avneet that she will add an important voice as she joins our current student board member Noah Semu on the Board.”
