Event Focused on Variety of Leadership Building Activities
On Friday, October 12, 2012, more than 60 students from Washington and Mt. Savage Middle Schools, Allegany, Fort Hill and Mountain Ridge High Schools, and the Career Center attended the day-long opening picnic for the Allegany County Association of Student Councils (ACASC) held at the Frostburg pavilion. The event consisted of a variety of leadership building activities as well as the dissemination of information regarding student council and ACASC.
The mission of ACASC is “to strive to bring together the public schools of Allegany County in providing quality leadership, service, education, and friendship between the schools and the community.” Middle and high school students involved in the group have the opportunity four times a year to attend meetings to discuss current events, which could include the Senior Citizen Prom, the Maryland State Association of Schools’ events, school fundraising events, community projects, and pending legislation at the county and state levels. Collectively, as a group, a decision is made to see what ACASC can do to help strengthen unity in Allegany County.
According to Josh Mallow, ACASC secretary, “ACASC has given me a new outlook as to how things work throughout the county. In addition to the hardworking members, we’re grateful to have such a dedicated Board of Education that really listens to what we have to say.
