Your State Representatives

State Representative Sydney O.

Sydney - Kansas Student Rep Profile Image“I hope to see a change in my community by decreasing bullying, by making people aware of their negative actions, and allowing people the opportunity to understand their true value by showing them they do not deserve the harsh treatment of others.”

-Sydney

Why Sydney was Nominated:

Sydney is who one would call your well-rounded student. She is academically strong, participates in sports, and well-liked by her peers and teachers. I have observed her to be inclusive and to be genuinely kind without fan fare or acknowledgment. While she could easily be voted on to have a leadership role within the school, she chooses to work behind the scenes or to give others a chance to shine.

State Representative Chelsea G.

Chelsea - Kansas Student Rep Profile Image“I want us to build a community that shows compassion and empathy to others.”

-Chelsea

Why Chelsea was Nominated:

Chelsea has a heart for helping others feel welcome. She approached me this summer with the idea of making sure every student at South High felt connected to our school. Chelsea took the initiative to communicate her idea with our school principal and to organize the club to begin this school year. I am honored to offer my support as the club sponsor and look forward to watching this program help students feel welcome and honored at South High.

State Representative Abigail M.

Abigail M. Profile image“I am a strong believer in how the small things can really have an effect on others’ lives.”

-Abigail

Why Abigail M. was Nominated:

I am nominating Abigail as a Be Strong representative because she has already proven to be a uniting force in her school. She is a member of our Peer Helpers group, which assists freshman students with a smooth transition into high school as well as providing assistance to the student body in various efforts throughout the school year. She is also a member of Student Council and works diligently to create opportunities for student involvement. She is a reporter on the student news magazine and would be an excellent voice for the organization in spreading its mission to others. Finally, Abigail was very involved in helping me to organize our on-site teen pantry – Maslow’s Pantry – which provides food, clothing and personal hygiene products to our students in need and their families. She helped to design our logo and has spent numerous hours with me in keeping the pantry clean, organized, and welcoming. Abigail is a kindhearted, generous individual who puts others first and strives to be the change in her school.

State Representative Chaeli K.

Casey L. Profile image“I choose to Be Strong in my school and community by showing compassion, having an attitude of gratitude and creating a safe environment within my school. Make an effort to show one act of kindness each day. It could be life-saving or life-changing without you even knowing it.”

– Chaeli

Why Chaeli K. was Nominated:

Chaeli is a leader in our school in many aspects. She has displayed characteristics of compassion, friendliness, caring and respect that we want all our students to display. She is a member of our Student Advisory Leadership Team where we have started a “Nobody Eats Alone” initiative at our school for lunch time. Chaeli would be a great leader for this in our school and state.
