Congratulations to Shaker Heights High School Seniors Zachary Nosanchuk and Gabe Sekeres, and Juniors Christos Ioannou, Melise Baltan-Brunet, Pawarisa Bunsophak, and Kevin LaMonica, who were selected for Congresswoman Marcia Fudge’s 11th Congressional District Youth Advisory Council.
The Youth Advisory Council provides high school students in Ohio’s 11th Congressional District the opportunity to share insight about issues relevant to them and their possible solutions with the Congresswoman. Rep. Fudge, a Shaker High School Alum, created the Youth Advisory Council to promote civic engagement amongst the next generation of future leaders. Officials from her office said the student selections were based on an internal rubric.
Zachary Nosanchuk, who has volunteered on national campaigns and been engaged in local government, says that he was thrilled to be accepted to the council. He looks forward to working with the group of teens to develop the nation’s political future. “As a council, we will be contributing to Congresswoman Fudge's views concerning youth on education, agriculture, economics, and more,” he says. “With her position as an upstanding leader in the Ohio and US political worlds, I am proud to serve on her Youth Advisory Council."
