The Greencastle-Antrim High School junior joins senior student representative Shavari Maharaj. He was the only student who sought the spot this year.

The student representatives attend school board meetings and update board members on events in the schools, student accomplishments, sports and other topics.

“I thought it would be fun to represent our school on an important board like this,” said Nathan, who is member of the golf and basketball teams, as well as Peer Leaders at the high school.
