Students Lorraine Foster (Senior and School Board Liaison) made a presentation to the members of the Cumberland School Board at the February 2017 meeting about her experiences at the Virginia School Board Association workshop for student liaisons. The workshop, which was held in Williamsburg in November, had sessions intended to teach life and learning skills to student leaders. The workshop featured various speakers, who worked with students on policy making, possible board situations, and life as a student representative. Miss Foster indicated that the students who participated in the workshop learned much about the process for creating school board policy and even had a chance to draft a proposed policy. Student Kayla Foster (Senior) also had the opportunity to attend the workshop.
