Calvert Student Council members meet other youth leaders
Delegates from Calvert High School joined nearly five thousand students and advisors representing 400 student councils from across the state that converged on the Arlington Convention Center on April 7-9 for the annual Texas Association of Student Councils (TASC) Annual Conference. St. Agnes Academy from Houston hosted the conference, which is the largest gathering of student leaders in the United States.
This year’s theme “Celebrating Diversity, Uniting in Leadership” urged student councils to identify problems in their schools and communities, make plans to remedy the problem, and unite students in enacting the solution.
TASC is a non-profit serving high school and middle level student councils in Texas. Sponsored by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals, its purposes are to develop leadership abilities in students, promote democracy as a way of life, and uphold high standards for local councils. With over 1300 member schools, it is the largest state student leadership organization in the US.
