Three Students Vying for Board of Education Seat

The Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) announced on its Instagram page (@CRASC_Online) today that three 11th-grade students have been named finalists for the 2024-2025 student member on the Board of Education of Anne Arundel County.

The students, selected from a field of five applicants, are:

  • Miguel Castañeda, Severna Park High School
  • Hafsa Hamdaoui, Crofton High School
  • Divine Kainessie, Glen Burnie High School

The Student Member on the Board of Education (SMOB) election is sponsored by CRASC. The Governor appoints the student member, serves a one-year term during their senior year of high school, and receives an $8,000 college scholarship.  Anne Arundel’s student member is the only one in the nation on a local Board of Education with full voting rights.

The finalists will participate in a debate broadcast on AACPS’ YouTube channel at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, 2024. Additional campaign events will be posted on www.aacps.org/crasc.

CRASC delegates will vote for a candidate in late April.
