Airport High School receives 2017 National Excellence Award

For its exemplary record of leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and AHS33community, Airport High School’s student government has been awarded a 2017 National Gold Council of Excellence Award by the National Association of Student Councils (NASC).

“Receiving an NASC National Gold Council of Excellence Award reflects the highest dedication on the part of the school to providing a strong, well-rounded student council program,” said Ann Postlewaite, National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) student programs director. “NASC applauds the work of the National Gold Councils of Excellence and challenges them to continue their leadership and service to their schools and communities.”

“On behalf of Airport High School, I’m extremely proud of our student government leaders under the direction of Mr. Daniel Bailey for being recognized as a National Gold Council of Excellence Award winner.  This national recognition is much deserved and appreciated as they have worked so hard to support our school and community this year,” said Airport High Principal Brad Coleman.

To meet the requirements for the NASC National Council of Excellence Award, a student council must meet a variety of criteria. In addition to basic requirements such as a written constitution, regular meetings, a democratic election process, and membership in NASC, councils demonstrate things such as leadership training for council members, teacher/staff appreciation activities, student recognition programs, school and community service projects, spirit activities, goal setting, financial planning, and active participation in state and national student council associations. Those councils awarded the gold level have successfully demonstrated the highest levels of leadership.
