Leesburg High School Student Council Earns National Award

1 min read| Published On: April 17th, 2024|

The Leesburg High School student council has once again proven its dedication to leadership, service, and community engagement by earning the 2024 National Gold Council of Excellence. This recognition is given to student councils that demonstrate exemplary records of service and activities that enhance both the school and the wider community.

“Receiving a National Gold Council of Excellence Award reflects the amazing dedication of the students and school to make their community a better place,” NASSP CEO Ronn Nozoe says. “Leesburg High School SGA has gone above and beyond in elevating student voice to ensure they are establishing a positive climate and culture, as well as fostering academic and social growth for all.”

The National Association of Student Councils (NASC), a program supported by its parent organization, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), awarded this distinguished honor to Leesburg High School in recognition of its outstanding commitment to fostering a positive impact through its various initiatives.

To earn the National Gold Council of Excellence Award, student councils must meet stringent criteria that highlight their effectiveness in governance, leadership development, and community service. Among these criteria are requirements such as maintaining a written constitution, conducting regular meetings, and ensuring a democratic election process. However, achieving this goes beyond mere compliance with these basic requirements.

“Our Jacket FAMILY’s Student Government Association is a testament to the school’s commitment of excellence and civic duty by our students and sponsors,” Principal Michael Randolph says.
