WATAUGA STUDENT-ATHLETEHAS UNIQUE ROLE
BOONE— Junior student-athlete Julia Roberts of Watauga High School recently assumed a unique role.
Roberts, who represents Region 7 on the North Carolina High School Athletic Association's Student-Athlete Advisory Council, is one of two students who have recently joined the Watauga County Board of Education as ex-officio members.
Roberts participates in cross-country, track and lacrosse at Watauga. According to reports in the Watauga Democrat, the student members of the Board of Education may not vote or receive confidential information, but they will be making monthly reports to the Board.
We are pleased to recognize Julia Roberts for both her work locally and her involvement with the NCHSAA.
