In the second episode of the brand new TidePod SGA segment, hosts Sabrena Carver-Tchagna and Lucy Meyer speak to junior Nick Asante, who is RM’s very own Student Member of the Board of Education (or SMOB) candidate for the 2020-21 school year. Asante, who announced his run for SMOB in early 2020, has made it to the final two and is competing against Magruder HS junior Victoria Kidder. The SMOB election will take place on April 22, when students across the county will vote for either Asante or Kidder to fill out the school year-long position. Montgomery County is one of two counties in Maryland to give its SMOB full Board of Education voting rights. To learn more about Asante and why he is running for SMOB, listen to “SGA Segment #2: RM’s SMOB Candidate” here.
