Hillsboro student to represent Class 2A on Student Advisory Team

Each year since 1996, Kansas high schools have the opportunity to nominate one male and one female student to represent their school on the Student Advisory Team (SAT) for the Kansas State High School Activities Association.

Carson Linnens, a sophomore at Hillsboro High School, was one of the 12 Kansas students to be selected as a student leader on the team this year.

“There are two representatives for each classification in the whole state, and Carson is going to be one of the 2a ones. We get to recommend students and we picked him. He had to write an essay for it and was chosen by KSHSAA,” said Robert Rempel, Hillsboro Middle High School Activity Director and Assistant Principal.

In order to be on the SAT, a student must be a junior in high school and serve a two-year term.The role of student leaders on the SAT is to provide input to the executive board, board of directors, and association staff regarding KSHSAA issues.

Linnens will serve as a sounding board on proposals affecting students, provide input at association meetings regarding proposals, network and communicate with other students regarding committee positions and express student opinions regarding KSHSAA activities and rules. He will attend the two meetings for the year in October and March.

“I’m excited to work with the KSHSAA board and be a student voice representing my school and class 2A,” said Linnens.

Linnens is the son of Julie and Kelly Linnens of Hillsboro. He has participated in all types of activities during his time at Hillsboro High School.

“Carson is a great student who will represent us very well. His leadership is appreciated,” said Hillsboro High School Principal Clint Corby.
