Meet Matt Post: Student Member of the Board of Education Elect (VIDEO)

Matthew Post, a junior at Sherwood High School, was elected this week as the 40th Student Member of the Board of Education (SMOB) for the 2017-18 school year.

Post is the first SMOB elected from Sherwood High School.

In what he describes as a competitive race,  Post beat Alex Abrosimov, a junior at Richard Montgomery High School for the position.

According to a Montgomery County Public Schools news release, 85 percent of secondary school students eligible to vote cast their ballots.  Post received 62 percent of the vote, and  his opponent, Abrosimov, received 37 percent.

In this MyMCMedia Extra video, Post talks about his priorities when he replaces Eric Guerci, the current SMOB, in July:
