Marion youth appointed to Ohio Teen Ambassador Board

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has announced the members of his office’s 2016-2017 Teen Ambassador Board. Those members include a Marion student.

Harding High School’s Anthony Miller will join more than 230 high school juniors and seniors as part of this year’s board. They represent over 50 counties and more than 150 schools. Their average grade point average is 3.87.

“We look forward to working with this accomplished group of students,” Attorney General DeWine said. “Serving on the Teen Ambassador Board gives young people an inside look at state government and allows them to connect with their peers across Ohio.”

The purpose of the Ohio Attorney General’s Teen Ambassador Board is to provide participants the opportunity to meet and interact with government officials, work together to provide feedback on key initiatives of the Attorney General’s Office, and learn about and discuss important issues facing Ohio today.

Board members serve a one-year term, during which they convene twice in Columbus. They are organized into groups and advised by mentors from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

“I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve on this board with so many talented students like myself,” said Miller. “I applied to this board not really knowing what would happen and a few months later I got the letter in the mail, I was to scared to open it because I didn’t want to be disappointed so I sat there and just looked the envelope for a good 10 minutes until I finally opened it and I was shocked.”

This year’s kick-off meeting will be held in August and students will serve through the spring of 2017.
