BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - In this week’s Excellence in Education report sponsored by Davis & Elkins College, we are highlighting a local high school student who has been accepted into the National Student Council Advisory Board.

Fairmont Senior High School’s Jamyson Posey is not just another high school sophomore. He was recently accepted into the National Student Council Advisory Board, or NSCAB.

“It is this program for student council and honor societies all over the nation. We all meet together and have big conferences in November and January. I will be planning them pretty much,” said Posey.

Jamyson is one out of eight students nationwide picked to join the council. He’s the first person to represent the state since 2006.

“I’m just so honored and grateful for this opportunity. It’s going to be an amazing experience, and I’m so excited. You get taught so much at the conference. You really are taught by amazing people on how to be a better leader,” Posey said.

The students will have Zoom meetings once a month in preparation for their two big conferences in Washington D.C. at the end of the year and the beginning of next year.

Jamyson says if it weren’t for Fairmont Senior Student Council, this would’ve never been possible.

“Fairmont Senior Council is very important, and we have an amazing student council that backs up the school. We just plan so much, and we really care for the student body. I have learned so much about responsibility and being there for the other students,” Posey said.
