About the Conference:
The Maine Association of Student Councils (MASC) wishes to welcome all to the State Conference. MASC, with a student led executive committee and sponsored by the Maine Principals’ Association, has developed a plan to transform leadership opportunities for Maine students. MASC invites Maine high school and junior high/middle schools to join our association. Student council provides an opportunity for students to lead their schools in a positive and active style. We provide guidance at the local, regional, state, and national levels. Membership provides your school access to workshops, meetings, information and the opportunity to communicate with fellow student councils.
The theme for the 2021 conference is “Celebrate Our Success.” The State Conference is a half-day event with the opportunities for students to hear from a keynote speaker, have a chance to learn from our workshops, and elect the 2021 officers for the Maine Student Council Advisory Committee.
Your student council can be part of the exciting activities in your school. Regional conferences will be planned with your newly elected state officers and will take place in March – April throughout the state.
At the State Conference, we will hear speeches from the 2021 Maine Student Council Officers. If you have a student who may be interested in running for an office, the following positions will be available: 1.) MASC Vice-President (can be in any high school grade); 2.) MASC President-Elect (must be a junior in high school, to then be President their senior year); 3.) Middle School/Junior High School Representative, and 4.) High School Representative. We will also need the following from each region to serve on the Maine Student Council Board: 1.) Regional Presidents (North, South, East, West, and Central); 2.) Regional Secretaries (North, South, East, West, and Central); and 3.) Middle School/Junior High School Representatives (North, South, East, West, and Central). Refer to the MPA website for information on the Leadership Roles and Responsibilities.
The Maine Association of Student Councils invites your school to join and be part of the collegiality of student council membership. If you have any questions, or would like more information, please contact Holly Couturier at 207-622-0217 ext. 126 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Autobiography from the Keynote Speakers:
Kaylee Porter – Currently I am a Human Nutrition major with a concentration in Plant-based Nutrition at the University of Maine. To go with my major, I am working towards a minor in sports kinesiology. I currently work for a dietetic internship lab where we study the effects of wild blueberry phenolic compounds in relation to wound healing. On top of all of that, I am a scholarship athlete for the Division 1 school. I run track & field and currently hold one of the 800m records at the University of Maine. If I’m not busy enough already, I work at Aroma Joes in Orono. Being a college athlete has really helped me to manage my time in an efficient fashion. While most of my time is spent on the track, the rest of the time is spent in the Library studying. I have been on the dean’s list two semesters in a row, and am most likely going to get on it again. In regard to the presentation that I have been asked to formulate, I have a lot of information about the college life of an athlete, and time management skills that I have found to be very valuable.
Adam Regan – I had the opportunity to serve as president of the Maine Association of Student Councils during my senior year of high school. I value the experiences I had and the lessons I learned during my time with MASC very highly, so I am ecstatic to be able to give back and speak at the 2021 Maine State Student Council Conference. I currently attend the University of Maine where I study International Affairs, with a concentration in International Security and a minor in Military Science. Additionally, I am enrolled and contracted with the University of Maine’s Army ROTC Program; when I graduate in 2023, I will commission into the Army as a Second Lieutenant. I am passionate about education, leadership, and helping others, and I am so excited to be able to share some insight and information with all of you at the 2021 state conference.
