Mildred High School Student Council Earns Statewide Recognition
For outstanding achievement in leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the
school and community, Mildred High School Student Council has been recognized by the Texas
Association of Student Councils (TASC) as a Sweepstakes Council. Sweepstakes Councils must
be recognized as an Outstanding Student Council and receive outstanding recognition in Drugs,
Alcohol, Safety and Health (DASH); Pride and Patriotism; and Energy and Environment as well as
submitting a Community Service Report. TASC has 1269 member schools. Of those, only 230 of
student councils statewide received this highly-esteemed sweepstakes honor.
Student Council members develop proven skills in team building, problem solving, project
planning, and decision making. Through their co-curricular activities, student council members
serve their communities while strengthening their academic and civic skills. Gwen McCluney,
adviser of Mildred Student Council expressed her excitement in earning this recognition saying,
“This is our second year in a row to receive the Pride and Patriotism Award and Outstanding
Student Council Award. To earn a Sweepstakes Award is such a big deal for us and speaks
volumes about the kind of work these students do for their school and community. I could not
be prouder of them.”
TASC is a non-profit serving high school and middle level student councils in Texas. Sponsored
by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals, its purposes are to develop leadership
abilities in students, promote democracy as a way of life, and uphold high standards for local
councils. With over 1200 member schools, it is the largest state student leadership
organization in the US.
