Jodi Harmon, a junior at South River High, has been nominated to theState Board of Education. After making a presentation to the Maryland Association of Student Councils last Saturday, Harmon became the first student in the county to have her name submitted to the Gov. William Donald Schaefer for appointment.
Students throughout the stateoverwhelmingly voted to support her nomination, along with a representative from Montgomery County. Schaefer will make his final appointment to the non-voting board position in July.
In the past, Anne Arundel County students have bypassed the position, opting for the seat on the county school board, a position with full voting rights.
