Eleven STISD students from Brownsville will represent the district and their respective campuses as they take on positions within the City of Brownsville during its 67th Annual Brownsville Scout Government Day on Friday, Feb. 8. 

 

In January, Boy and Girl Scouts from troops throughout the Brownsville community attended an election convention and elected a Scout mayor and six Scout commissioners. These leaders reviewed all applications submitted by students interested in participating in the upcoming event and appointed students for the available positions.

 

At the middle school level, we have six students participating from our Rising Scholars Academy campus. Those students and position take-overs include: Natalie Lawler (7th-grader)- streets and drainage supervisor; Ben Sikes (8th-grader)- public works environmental coordinator; Karolina Flores (7th-grader)- event center manager; Zachary Edelstein (8th-grader)- golf center manager; Nicholas Rendon (7th-grader)- Brownsville Public Utilities Board general manager/CEO and Natalie Ruiz (7th-grader)- food and nutrition services.

 

At the high school level, Medical Academy and Science Academy will take part. Medical Academy student Seth Herrera (11th-grader) will take on the role of city attorney. The Science Academy has four participants. Those participants and their roles are as follows: James Puckett (9th-grader)- Commissioner At-Large “A;” Mariclara Rivera (10th-grader)- court administrator; Reagan Justis (10th-grader)- interim police chief and Ryan Lawler (9th-grader)- sports park superintendent. 

 

STISD’s 11 students are among 82 students participating from the Brownsville area. Students will lead and learn in their designated roles between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Feb. 8, and will have the opportunity to discuss their interests and concerns after a day of “walking in their shoes.”
