On June 2nd, three students from the Ottawa Catholic School Board were appointed to the Minister's Student Advisory Council (MSAC). The students in the MSAC share ideas and provide advice to the minister on topics regarding Ontario's education system.
Out of 450 applicants, 60 were chosen to represent Ontario's cultural, social and geographic diversity. This year, the three OCSB students were selected and recognized for their leadership and initiative: Gigi Huang, Benjamin McLellan-Campbell, and Dylan Sova.
Gigi Huang, a student at Mother Teresa High School, has various certificates and experiences from her high school career. She has participated in the Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) program, the Ontario Summer Company Program, Dual Credit Program, and a Co-op program at school.
Benjamin McLellan-Campbell, a student at St. Francis Xavier High School, currently serves as one of the two Student Trustees for the Ottawa Catholic School Board.
Dylan Sova, a student at St. Mark High School, has various roles within his school and community. He is a leader at leadership camp, has acted in school plays, is a member of headstrong (mental health awareness club) at school, and is a member of the Youth of Manotick Association.
Congratulations to these remarkable students and good luck in your future endeavours!
