SMOB Results Are In

Student Member of the Board (SMOB) elections took place on April 19. Candidate Sami Saaed was announced as the new SMOB for the 2023 to 2024 school year. 

The two candidates running for SMOB were Sami Saaed from Richard Montgomery and Yoseph Zerihun from Springbrook. Students across the county got familiar with both candidates through a video where they each had the chance to answer a series of questions regarding what they would do if elected. Students then had the opportunity to vote for the candidate they deemed best fit this Tuesday. 

The entire Montgomery County student body was able to vote on both candidates. The results showed that the majority of students voted for Saaed to be their voice on the school board. He will have the chance to vote on many pressing issues such as collective bargaining, capital, operating budgets, school closings, re-openings, and boundaries.
