Hayes High School senior Meg Wolf, who was sworn in last week as Delaware City Schools’ newest student board member, said she’s looking forward to giving students a voice on the board throughout the school year.

Wolf said she’s been interested in the position since her first year at Hayes.

“I heard about the position my freshman year over the school announcements which made me curious as to what it was about,” Wolf said. “From that point, the more I got involved in the DCS community the more I wanted to do anything to leave a positive impact which lead me right back to the school board position.”

Wolf said she is “very involved” in district athletics and competes in cross country, swimming, and track and field. She is also a member of National Honor Society, mock trial team, and is a graduate of the global scholars diplomacy program.

After being sworn in during the Aug. 15 Board of Education meeting, Wolf said she’s excited to learn the ropes and everything that goes into being a board member.

“I am most looking forward to everything I get to learn!” she said. “I don’t know quite what this year has in store for me, but I am surrounded by people I can learn and grow from. I know it will be an incredible experience that will shape me for a long time!”

Wolf said her goal as the student board member is to make the district as inclusive as possible.

“I know there are many students, faculty members, and parents that want to see more inclusionary programs (and) efforts for all students in our district, and I would love to help some of these efforts be seen,” Wolf said. “I also want to give students a platform to make their education the best it can be. It’s not often you see a district giving students a direct voice in decisions, so I would love to help as many students get the best out of their time in Delaware City Schools.”

Wolf added she’s thankful for the opportunity to be the district’s student board member.

“… I am incredibly grateful to the community I get to serve for the next year, and I hope I can do as much as I can to make any sort of impact, big or small,” she said.
