Colonel Richardson High School Junior Shelbi Briggs has been appointed by Governor Hogan to a two year term on the Maryland Youth Advisory Council.
The Governor’s Office recently issued a press release naming only 23 Maryland high school students from 10 school systems to the council. The Maryland Youth Advisory Council was established in 2008 to ensure that Maryland students are given the opportunity to have input on issues impacting youth and young adults in Maryland. The Council provides legislative recommendations, spreads public awareness of youth policy issues, and serves as a liaison between young people in Maryland and policymakers in their communities.
“Shelbi is not only an excellent high school student, she also excels in college courses while being a positive role model and leader to her peers,” CRHS Principal Nicole VonDenBosch said. “She balances her excellent academic work with participation in cheerleading and employment at Chick-Fil-A.”
Interim Superintendent Derek L. Simmons said, “We are incredibly proud to have a Caroline student chosen for this important position. Shelbi is an excellent choice and will play an integral part in the work of the council over the next two years.”
