As we all know these past few months have been difficult. We in the Northeast have been working to expand representation within the OSR to currently unrepresented schools, as well as to improve communication. Our hope is that we as a board can serve as a liaison and sounding board for concerns you all have during the chaos. I have personally heard from some of you about potential mistreatment and I appreciate hearing every one of these concerns.
Thank you all who have put your name in the running for regional elections. The OSR needs committed and excited students to take the lead and I’m sure whoever is elected will do a great job.
Please continue to reach out and look for ways to collaborate if it would benefit your school. The newly revamped communication channels are ideally poised for this, however let me know if you’ve any concerns or difficulty connecting.
Don’t forget to love one another.
