For outstanding achievement in leadership, service, and activities that serve to improve the school and community, Lake Creek and Montgomery High Schools have been recognized by the Texas Association of Student Councils (TASC) as Sweepstakes Councils.
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 1,166 member schools. Of those, Lake Creek and Montgomery High School are two of only 171 student councils statewide to receive this highly-esteemed 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.
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. TASC members work every day to make schools a place where students and staff want to be and to leave our world better than they found it. With almost 1200 member schools, it is the largest state student council organization in the US.
Montgomery ISD is very proud of these student organizations and the collaboration that is done between each campus’ sponsor to support the MISD community. Congratulations to these students and the teachers and administrators that support their success.
