Election for student school board member rescheduled

The election for the next student member of the Montgomery County Board of Education was moved from April 21 to April 22 and 23.

The change “aims to accommodate students for a two-day period and to ensure student access to the ballot regardless of” student schedules, according to a school board memo.

All MCPS middle and high school students are eligible to vote in the election.

The two finalists for the position, Hana O’Looney and Henry Kaye, are juniors at Richard Montgomery High School.

The current student member, Nick Asante, is a senior at Richard Montgomery High School.

The student school board member receives a $5,000 college scholarship, student service learning hours and one honors-level social studies credit.

Principals appointed at three schools

The Montgomery County Board of Education has appointed new principals at three schools.

The new principals are:

• Tiffany Awkard, Silver Creek Middle School in Kensington
• Megan McLaughlin, A. Mario Loiederman Middle School in Silver Spring
• Shawaan Robinson, Briggs Chaney Middle School in Silver Spring

All three were the acting principals at their respective schools.
