CITY OF HIGHLAND PARK SEEKS STUDENT COMMISSIONERS
The City of Highland Park has worked together with local high schools in the past to invite high school students to expand real governmental experience by having student members on Commissions. This has been a great opportunity for the students to learn about local government and see democracy in action; additionally, it has proven to be a great asset to the City.
Student commissioners begin their term in January of junior year until graduation. Each student is able to serve on the Commission or Task Force he/she is interested in and will act as an ex-officio member of the commission without a vote, but meet the same expectations as other members on the respective commission, task force or board.
A list of the City’s boards, commissions and task forces can be found at: www.cityhpil.com/boardsandcommissions. The link to the online application for student commissioners is www.cityhpil.com/studentcommission. The deadline for online applications this year is December 6, 2013.
If you have any questions, please contact either Karen Berardi from the City of Highland Park at email@example.com or Ms. Lesa Friedrich at HPHS firstname.lastname@example.org.
