LDMS Student Council
LDMS StuCo Earns Statewide Recognition
Council wins coveted Sweepstakes Award for their activities and service this year!
For outstanding achievement in leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community, LDMS Student Council (StuCo) has been recognized by the Texas Association of Student Councils (TASC) as a Sweepstakes Council. To receive Sweepstakes, councils must be recognized as an Outstanding Student Council and receive outstanding recognition in Drugs, Alcohol, Safety and Health (DASH); Pride and Patriotism; and Energy and Environment as well as submitting a Community Service Report.
“The TASC outstanding school recognition program is designed to set a standard of excellence for Texas student councils,” Mr. Terry Hamm, TASC Director said. “Fewer than 20% of TASC member schools are recognized in one or more areas, so this is quite an accomplishment of which your school can be proud.”
Student Council members develop proven skills in team building, problem solving, project planning, and decision making. Through their co-curricular activities, student council members serve their communities while strengthening their academic and civic skills.
“We are so very proud of how hard our council has worked to achieve such an accomplishment,” Mr. John Fabro and Mrs. Theresa Pierce, LDMS StuCo sponsors said, “especially since this is the first time in our school history that this has been awarded. We have a great group of leaders who worked hard and had fun while doing it.”
