Taft High School Student Council Receives Highest Honor for Achievement | New

Taft High School is one of nine high schools in the state to be recognized as a high-performing leadership program with a Gold Council Award. The award, sponsored by the Oregon Association of Student Councils (OASC), sets high standards for student councils and leadership programs, and honors them if they can meet or exceed these goals.

Leadership programs begin with setting goals in the fall and actively participate in leadership activities and events throughout the year. In order to receive the award, programs must create and encourage activities that promote inclusion among all students in the school and provide a series of events that include a variety of different areas/disciplines in the school. In addition to their involvement in school, they must also demonstrate that they are learning valuable leadership and professional skills that they can take with them outside of school.
