Crofton Resident a Finalist for Student Board Seat
Arundel High's Wilglory Tanjong is one of three students who could have a vote on the Anne Arundel County Board of Education.
A Crofton resident and Arundel High student is among the finalists to serve on the Anne Arundel County Board of Education next school year as its lone student member.
Wilglory Tanjong, who is currently a junior at Arundel, will be one of three students who could have their name forwarded to Gov. Martin O'Malley for appointment to the board.
The other two student candidates are Scott Lanoue and Else Drooff, both of Broadneck High School.
All three students will take part in a candidates session on Wednesday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the board room of Anne Arundel County Public Schools offices in Annapolis.
The Chesapeake Regional Association of Student Councils (CRASC) will vote on April 5 to determine which name to forward to O'Malley, who will make the final appointment.
The student board member has full voting rights and serves a one-year term. The position comes with a $6,000 college scholarship.
Nick LeFavor of Old Mill High School is the current student board member.
