ADAMS TOWNSHIP — Clinton-Massie High School’s student council is moving forward with plans to host the 2017 Ohio Association of Student Council (OASC) Conference.
Five hundred middle and high school student council members from throughout the state are set to converge on the Clinton-Massie campus April 27 to 29 to attend the annual conference.
The conference offers students and advisors the opportunity to attend workshops, be inspired by exciting keynote speakers, meet and network with other student leaders from around the state, attend the official business meeting and awards assembly of the OASC, and elect the students and adults who will serve on the executive board.
In an effort to help offset the cost for out-of-town students attending the conference, CM’s student council is seeking families in the community and surrounding areas interested in serving as hosts to students in need of lodging assistance.
Host families should be able to house more than one student and should also be prepared to provide meals and event transportation.
By providing accommodations that are both comfortable and safe, parents of Massie’s out-of-town guests can rest easy knowing their children are in good hands.
Community members interested in serving as a host family should complete a housing application as available online at www.clinton-massie.k12.oh.us or through the high school office.
Questions regarding the event may be directed to Student Council Advisor Kelley Felder by emailing [email protected] or by calling 937-289-2109 ext. 2204.
Student council members made a formal presentation before the OASC governing board in February to demonstrate Massie’s commitment and vision in hosting the conference.
The 2017 event will be OASC’s 64th annual conference.
According to a News Journal article in May, Massie student council members have selected the theme “You’ve got a friend in OASC.” They will incorporate the slogan, “As the years go by, our friendship will never die. You’re gonna see it’s our destiny. You’ve got a friend in OASC!” into the conference program of activities.
The OASC is a statewide organization designed to help improve and promote student council programs in Ohio’s secondary schools.
In September 2015, student council officers went before the Clinton-Massie Local Schools Board of Education requesting the district’s support in hosting the annual conference.
