The Cumberland Times News reports that while an exact date hasn’t been set, Gov. Larry Hogan “in the near future” will announce one of two finalists, which include a local resident, as the next student member of the Maryland State Board of Education, his office said Tuesday.  Allison Schultz, an 11th grade Fort Hill High School student, advanced Saturday in a competition for a seat on the 2022-2023 state education board. She was among five nominees to participate in the Maryland Association of Student Councils virtual legislative session, where she and Merin Thomas, a student from James M. Bennett High School in Wicomico County, became the final candidates for the state seat.
