Hey Vikings! This is a message from the Hawaii State Student Council Historian, Enjl Himoya:
"There is a vacancy for the position of HSSC Representative for Hilo High School. Hawaii State Student Council (HSSC) is the official representation of Hawaii’s 180,000 public school students. The council is comprised of members spanning the several islands of the state who meet on a regular basis, typically once a month, to discuss student concerns and action to remedy the present and future issues of education and student life. Each public high school is represented by one student to ensure that all the student voices of Hawaii are heard, which is more appropriately known as the HSSC Representative. Being a HSSC Representative is an amazing opportunity for you to meet new people from across the state and participate in various committees that address specific issues within the Hawai’i public education system. The Hawaii State Student Council even collaborates with the State legislature to promote student voice in the laws that affect us today. If you would like to apply, email the Hilo High School Student Association at firstname.lastname@example.org . Applications will be sent out to those who are interested starting today and will be due on November 16th 2020. This is a great opportunity for people, especially for an underclassman, to build your connections and resume, but of course the position is open to everyone. If you are passionate about the importance of civic engagement and student voice, then I highly encourage you to apply. Thank you and best of luck!"
