Boulder High School’s Student Council is in the process of becoming part of the National Association of Student Councils’ National Councils of Excellence.
To be part of the NASC is basically “to be recognized as a high quality student council,” explained Student Council member Flora Quinby, a sophomore.
The process to reach this new level requires Student Council members to meet 23 standards. To prove their qualification, Student Council must submit an extensive binder of the council’s accomplishments and projects from 2011.
“Our binder is all purple and gold; it’s going to be cool,” Quinby said.
The binder is due at the beginning of 2012, so time is running out for completion. Once certified as a National Council of Excellence, Student Council must reapply every year, but the first year is the most complicated and exhaustive.
“Only one school in Colorado got it last year, so it’s a big deal,” said Student Council member Adrienne Lowney, a junior.
Once the binder is turned in and the stress is over with, the Student Council will receive a certificate and will be announced at the NASC National Conference. Last year, the conference was held in Saint Louis.
