Cedarcrest's Austin Koons, Kylie Leslie to serve on Riverview school board

The Riverview School Board student representatives for the 2011-12 school year are Cedarcrest High School senior, Austin Koons, serving his second year in this position, and junior Kylie Leslie, a first-year representative.

This position offers students the opportunity to interact with community leaders, develop and refine leadership and public speaking skills, and gain knowledge of school board issues and procedures. In addition, the position also offers these students the chance to experience actual, legal policymaking first-hand as well as expand their understanding and respect for public service.

Both Austin and Kylie will attend all regular board meetings while school is in session, but no executive sessions. Once a month they will provide reports to the school board on Cedarcrest student activities, topics and general concerns.

Austin and Kylie will also participate in some board training sessions, such as the WSSDA Annual Conference and the WSSDA Legislative Conference in Olympia.
