Chesterton High School sophomore Lauren Lecy will attend her first executive board meeting as a student officer of the Indiana High School Press Association (IHSPA) at Carmel High School on Dec. 8.

According to IHSPA director Diana Hadley, student officers at the meeting will provide ideas for a keynote speaker for the First Amendment Symposium at the Indiana Statehouse on March 6, 2013, and they will select topics for five-minute speeches that each of them will give about an aspect of The First Amendment or about one of the IHSPA core values (freedom, integrity, courage, truth).

Student officers provide valuable information about current issues in scholastic journalism, Hadley added. The officers are on the front lines of topics such as schedule conflicts, weighted grades, and academic curriculum, among many others.

Lecy, a second-year member of The Sandscript and its current news editor, was named a student officer during the IHSPA convention at Franklin College on Oct. 19.
