Haleemat Adekoya - Student Board Member

Report to the Board of Education of Baltimore County From the Student Member of the Board

February 5, 2019

Good evening, everyone. Happy Tuesday!

I’m happy to share that my first episode of “Hanging with Haleemat” is up and ready for viewing on the BCPS vimeo page.

This episode spotlights the Milford Mill Academy Forensics club! Hanging with Haleemat is a platform where I highlight Team BCPS student clubs and organizations. Interested in having your school organization highlighted on “Hanging with Haleemat”? Email me!

I had an opportunity to meet with a BCPS senior who contacted me to discuss career and technology education (CTE) and vocational programs. I was able to facilitate a meeting with BCPS staff and this student to discover new ways to enhance our current vocational systems to truly include both our college and career learners. This meeting helped provide insights to create more awareness of the amazing programs provided to students and how they themselves can learn how to research those opportunities. I believe that great things are coming our way team BCPS. 

I had the chance to visit Bedford Elementary School’s student council, who by the way are rockstars. We discussed their plans for their school community, created a list of words that will be their standard for operating as a team effectively and lastly started our own definition of what it means to be a leader. In a few weeks, we have a BIG surprise for them at Greenwood filled with lots of leadership activities and pure fun. 

I’d like to give a big shout-out to the fourth grade class of Woodmoor Elementary School, who welcomed my friends and me, as we shed light on our appreciation for our African culture. We are proud of who we are and where we come from! Students, you should be too. 

Cue drumroll please… BOOM Guess what everyone? BCPS is currently seeking applications for the next Student Member of the Board. Sigh… tear drop. Each high school has the opportunity to nominate two students by Friday, February 15. Information can be found on the BCPS homepage. Interested students who are currently a sophomore or junior should speak with their principal for more information. This is an exciting opportunity to serve your Baltimore county school community in a huge way. I’ve loved every bit of being SMOB, and would definitely say if you’re ready to carry on the responsibility of being your peers’ voice… sign up today!

In addition, I would love to announce a new group that I will be creating called the Schoology Student Ambassadors. A Schoology Student Ambassador is a representative of each middle and high school who will be responsible for relaying information, updates and feedback given to them by BCSC (Baltimore County Student Councils) to their specific schoolhouse. This new initiative will help in bridging the communication gap between BCSC and our lovely peers. Recommendations from principals for Schoology Student Ambassadors are being accepted beginning Tuesday, February 8, 2019. 

In all that I do, I will continue to put your voice as students as my first and foremost focus. Your needs and wants matter to me, and I promise to continuously give voice to the voiceless. As the school year progresses, please do not hesitate to keep me in the loop of your needs, wants and concerns as students! Do not hesitate to continue to contact me or invite me to school events either! 

Good luck in the third quarter. 

Thank you!
