Delta High School senior named student representative on Kennewick School Board

Delta High School senior Jaxon Dean will serve as the student representative on the Kennewick School Board for the 2016-17 school year.

Dean is a non-voting member of the board but will be a resource to board members regarding student reaction and perspectives to board policy and other student issues.

Dean lives in the Kennewick School District and has attended Delta High since he was a freshman.

He recently served as treasurer for Delta High’s Student Senate. He is a member of several student clubs, including Key Club and the school’s chapter of National Honor Society.

Dean said he ultimately wants to pursue a master’s degree in bio-mechanical engineering on his way to a dream career of designing prosthetics.

However, he also aspires to a role in government, specifically the state House of Representatives. That motivated Dean to seek the student representative position in order to learn more about public service.
