My Name is Ella Carter. I am in the EHS graduating class of 2026. I’m involved in drama club, choir, and Bel Canto. I joined the District 7 Student Advisory Board because I am interested in making the schools in our district the best possible environments for students of every grade level. I want to hear what ideas, feelings, or emotions students have about their school and be able to make their ideas a reality in some form. I strive to make sure every student wants to come to school, whether that be because of the environment, extra curriculars, or an interesting project in class. My hope is that my position on this committee will enhance communication between students, staff, the community, and the Board of Education.
