GREENE – Less than a year after receiving his high school diploma, Greene graduate Ethan Day is vying for a seat on his alma mater’s school board.
Rather than seeing his young age as a disadvantage, Day, who is currently studying political science at Binghamton University, believes it is one of his strongest assets in the election.
“I can offer a unique perspective on the needs of the district,” the well spoken 19-year old explained.
Because his own school experience is still fresh in his mind, Day said he believes he can offer insight into the student thought process, as well as what is and what isn’t working at the school. Such as the effectiveness of programs and curriculum, and the impact of proposed cuts.
As a college student who creates his own schedule, he said he has the time to devote to the board. And as both a graduate and resident of the Greene district, with two younger brothers enrolled in the Middle School, he says he has a vested interest in the continual success of the district.
