If at first you don’t succeed, try again.

That’s what Loreley Drees did when she applied her junior year to be a student representative on the Helena school board but didn’t get the position. This year, her senior year, she was sworn in at the Aug. 9 school board meeting as Helena High School’s student rep.

Her fellow student rep on the board is Capital High School’s Keiran Boyle, also a senior. He was sworn in at the June 14 school board meeting.

Both Boyle and Drees accepted the positions as student reps because they thought they could make a difference in Helena schools and in the community. They’re prepared for a year of growth and big changes since this will be Helena Public Schools’ first “normal” school year since the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in Montana in 2020.
