A rising senior from Patriot High School in Nokesville is joining the Prince William County School Board.
Sasan Faraj has been named the board’s student representative for the upcoming school year.
The announcement was made at a meeting last month, according to a release.
Faraj will replace Kate Arnold, who attended Hylton High School in Woodbridge.
“Last year marked the first time we included a student representative to the School Board, and it was wonderful having that perspective,” Superintendent Steve Walts said in a release. “I am looking forward to another successful year and all of the insight Sasan will share.”
Annabel Bergeron from Brentsville District High School in Nokesville and Wilfredo Villatoro from Gar-Field High School in Woodbridge will serve as alternates.
Faraj will attend his first meeting as student representative on September 5.
He will be a non-voting member; however, he can share suggestions and concerns from students.
“Being selected as the student representative to the School Board is an honor and a privilege,” Faraj said in a release. “Through hard work, tenacity, and teamwork among all of the student representatives, we can ensure that the student body’s voice is heard and the School Board’s decisions are understood.”
Being named the board’s student representative isn’t Faraj’s only accomplishment.
He is also captain of Patriot High School’s debate team, and a member of the National Honor and National English Honor societies.
In March, Faraj represented his school at the 2018 West Point Leadership and Ethics Conference.
He is representing the school system at the Summer Residential Governor’s School for Humanities this summer, as well.
