The Sudbury Catholic District School Board has announced the appointment of Rosaria Nero as the student trustee for the 2020-2021 school year.
Nero is a Grade 12 student at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School. She has actively participated within her school community from the beginning of her secondary experience with the Sudbury Catholic District School Board.
The teen serves on both the Student Senate and the Student Council. These organizations continue to inspire Nero, and to help grow in her leadership and to better understand the work that goes into organizing fundraisers such as “Bear’s Crush Cancer” and various other school functions.
Nero aspires to one day become a Human Rights Lawyer and stand up for those who are unable to advocate for themselves.
She is involved in many extracurricular activities within the St. Benedict school community such as volleyball and soccer. In addition, she has also participated in many events that played a vital role in igniting her passion for public speaking and working as part of a team.
“It is an honour to be student trustee as we navigate a unique school year at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board,” said Nero, in a press release. “I feel truly blessed that I am able to represent student voice and work alongside the board of trustees to help make a difference for my fellow students.”
“We welcome Rosaria as student trustee for the 2020-2021 school year,” said Michael Bellmore, chairperson of the board of trustees at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. “Her dedication to helping others and her strong leadership is truly inspiring and we are so fortunate to work alongside her this school year.”
