Student Member, Board of Education of Cecil County
Term Ends: June 2021
Sophia Porter is a senior at North East High School. She is a member of her school’s corollary bowling team and Tennis team. She is also active with her school’s drama club and has been involved in Streetlamp Productions, in Rising Sun, as well.
This spring Sophia started a job at Port House Grill on Main Street in North East, where she is a hostess and holds the title of “Ice Cream Captain.” She also sells paintings on the side that she creates for friends and family. Other interests include singing, dancing, and walking the family dogs.
Sophia was class president of the junior class this past year, and is determined to bring more attention to artists in the county. She believes that if we give the same attention to theater productions and art fairs as we do to sporting events, our students involved will have made an impact on society. She also hopes to provide better attention, help, and care for her peers struggling with mental health issues, and letting them know they are not alone.
As the Student Member of the Board, Sophia looks forward to giving a voice to her classmates and strives to better our learning environment.
