Julia commented, “I have always been interested in policy whether recycling programs at M-A or national climate change policy. This is a great way for a young person to have a voice. But I know that my voice has to be a reflection of my M-A peers’ opinions.”
Leah looks forward to working with other members of the Student Advisory Board. “After only two meetings I’m already impressed by the talented, articulate and intelligent students who are serving with us. I know that we will learn a lot about current issues as well as proposed legislation and how it might impact students.”
Julia and Leah are committed to gathering the opinions and ideas of M-A students on issues they study. They will be looking for feedback from students on healthcare, green education, jobs and more.
