Ankeny Board of Education Welcomes Student Representatives
The Ankeny school board has two new members and they are students in the district. Evelynn Neller, a sophomore at Ankeny High School, and Charlotte Brink, a junior at Centennial High School, were formally welcomed to the board at the meeting on Tuesday, October 5.
As outlined in board policy, the students will participate in discussion, but will not be voting members and may attend all regular board meetings held in open session. Their primary responsibility is to serve as the designated student voice in parts of the open board meeting when other members are invited to ask questions. The students have undergone a training to kick off their board tenure and shall serve for one year.
