Delegates from Montgomery County Public Schools secondary schools have nominated two finalists for the student seat on the county Board of Education.
Christopher Lloyd of John F. Kennedy High School and Steven Ramsey of Col. Zadok Magruder High School were selected at a March 9 convention held at James Hubert Blake High School. The 244 student delegates representing middle and high schools selected the finalists following several rounds of questions and answers and two ballots to narrow the field.
Lloyd and Ramsey were selected from a field of eight candidates. Following a general campaign period, secondary students throughout the county will elect the 23rd student member of the Board on May 4. The new Board member will serve a one-year term beginning July 1. The current student Board member, Laura Sampedro, is a senior at Springbrook High School.
