On October 20th, 2011 the outer islands made history by electing the first inter island student council. Sadly, Monhegan couldn't join the rest of the islands because of an internet failure, but fortunately was on speaker phone to hear who was sworn in. The week before everyone who was running for a position posted a video(s), or a glogster(online poster) about what makes them suitable for the job they were running for. Voting day came around and everyone got to vote 2nd grade and up. It was a stressful race although a friendly one, no negative campaigning was necessary. Yay! The positions that were available were: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Relations Representer, Parent Teacher Representer. The island representers were nominated into the position.
Here is the Line up for the first Inter island student council:
Vice President: Emma
PR Rep: Meg
PT Rep: Meg
Cliff Rep: Eliza
Isle Au Haut Rep: Alex and Michael
Islesford Rep: Louise
Matinicus Rep: Dylan
