TOWSON, Md. — A Towson High student has been selected to be sworn in as the next student member of the Maryland State Board of Education for 2019-2020.

Rising junior Noureen Badwi was selected after applying to the Maryland Association of Student Councils.

Born in Cairo, Egypt, as the daughter of two professors, Badwi moved to Baltimore County with her family while she was in elementary school.

Of her new role, Badwi wrote, “I am incredibly honored and excited to advocate for the diverse 890,000+ students of our state in our pursuit of a world-class education that works for all of us.”

Badwi aspires to become a federal prosecutor based in Manhattan and perhaps enter politics one day. The last two Maryland State Board of Education student members from the county were Nina Marks of Dulaney High and Ebehireme Inegbenebor of New Town High.
