Dylan Spano is the president of the Allegany County Association of Student Councils (ACASC) from Fort Hill High School. He presides over all meetings, appoints chairmen to committees, replaces the Student Member of the Board (SMOB) in case of absence, and keeps everybody on the board up to date on each other’s accomplishments. He has two focuses for ACASC during 2015-2016. In no particular order, these focuses are to make the schools in Allegany County more environmentally friendly and to create greater student participation in student council.
Dylan understands the importance of everyone’s voice being heard. He hopes to create greater student participation by making it easier to submit ideas to the board. Many students are embarrassed or shy when it comes to suggesting change to how the student council or how the schools function. Therefore, He wants to create some sort of “anonymous tip” service, which would be available online. Dylan also hopes to use social media to keep the members of ACASC both interested and informed on ACASC business.
Dylan cares deeply about the environment. He hopes to make the school more environmentally friendly by reducing energy usage. He wants to do this by seeing how much energy each school uses, how much energy specific appliances use, and the fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission factor. Although there is not enough money in the budget to convert the school green, Dylan wants to organize the facts so that we can test the waters and allow future generations to continue the process.
