Putnam City North High School’s student council was recently notified that is one of just two in Oklahoma and 28 across the nation to be named by the National Association of Student Councils (NASC) as a National Council of Excellence for 10 consecutive years.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the NASC as one of its longstanding Councils of Excellence. I know we appreciate the recognition of our hard work and are also humbled by the honor of serving a council with such a rich history of leadership and service,” says Shane Wilson, president of Students United at North (SUN), the student council at Putnam City North.
Each year the award recognizes exemplary records of leadership, service and activities by student councils across the country. Winning student councils have strong year-round programs and work to improve their schools and communities.
Brittani Parker, the faculty sponsor for SUN, says the organization’s history of strong leadership is behind the recognition.
“I am so fortunate to advise such a fantastic group of student leaders. North has long been a model of excellent student leadership and it is an honor to help continue the tradition. I admire all of the SUN sponsors who have come before me and the bar that has been set,” Parker says.
