Kaylee Kelly a Grade 10 student at Huntsville High School is the new student trustee for Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB).
The announcement was made April 26 following the G7 Student Leadership conference, where close to 100 high school students from seven high schools attended Kinark Outdoor Centre to learn about and celebrate student leadership.
Kaylee was one of three representatives who gave a speech on why they would be the best person for the student trustee role. In her winning speech, Kaylee said students have the power to lead and the ability to make a positive change if they all work together.
In addition to the speeches, the day featured various activities that incorporated team work, discussion, and leadership. Students also heard from several speakers, which were all teachers within the Board, throughout the day on leadership.
Kaylee’s student trustee role will require her to attend Ontario Student Trustee Association meetings, as well as bring issues and accomplishments from each TLDSB secondary school to board meetings.
Kaylee takes over for outgoing student trustee Chloe Samson.
