The A.V.I.D student body is working on a student committee for A.V.I.D. This student committee will consist of two students from each grade, they will share the ideas of their fellow peers. The name of the committee is The A.V.I.D Student Committee. This committee will help A.V.I.D students be more involved in helping fund A.V.I.D, and improve the program with many new exciting and creative ideas from the students. A.V.I.D stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. A.V.I.D helps students prepare for college. The A.V.I.D Student Committee will help more students be involved to improve the program and find different creative ways to fund A.V.I.D.
Two students from each grade will be picked for the chance to be apart of the Avid Student Committee. Senior, Sophia Aulbach is a student in A.V.I.D. Aulbach came up with the idea to create this committee for students. She did this because teachers would go to meetings and talk about how to funds and improve A.V.I.D. The teachers would then go back and talk to the students to see what they wanted to do or add. The students picked to be apart of the A.V.I.D Student Committee will go to meetings with the A.V.I.D teachers to talk about different ways to help with funding and special events. One of the A.V.I.D teachers, Tiana Fox, said that Aulbach had the idea for the students that were picked to bring the information back to the A.V.I.D student body. “They could come to a meeting with us and then they could go back to their classes and then they could bring that information to the teachers so that the student voices would be heard.” These eight students would ensure that their fellow peers got more say in what goes on during the meetings and everybody’s ideas would be heard and acknowledged.
Mrs. Fox hopes that students will see this as a good leadership opportunity for the students, and the students ideas will be taken seriously by the teachers, peers and other staff members. Mrs. Fox states, “I think this is a great leadership opportunity, and an opportunity to have your voice heard and your ideas taken seriously.” The A.V.I.D Student Committee can give more students the opportunity and outlet to share their creative ideas.
The A.V.I.D Student Committee will give many students the chance to bring in new and creative ideas that will help fund and improve the Advanced Via Individual Determination program. Everybody in A.V.I.D will get a chance to have their thoughts and ideas shared. Students will also be more involved. This committee will bring in many new exciting ideas. It will also bring in many different thoughts, opinions, and outlooks on how to do certain things.
