Two Students Named to Superintendent Baesler’s Student Cabine

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Hanson Du, an 11th grade student at Grand Forks Central High School, and Eli Zerr, a 10th grade student at Red River High School, are two of 25 students selected from across the state to serve in North Dakota State School Superintendent Kirsten Baesler’s student cabinet.

The cabinet will advise her about ways to strengthen North Dakota’s K-12 education system.

Members will serve for 22 months, beginning August 1, and ending in June 2024. The group will meet with Baesler every three months at the North Dakota Capitol. Its first meeting is scheduled for August 16.

“Since the Superintendent’s Student Cabinet program began, its members have provided me a great deal of valuable advice and opinions, and helped to shape public education policy,” Baesler said. “They have helped build my understanding of what our students need, and to learn what is going well in our schools and what can be improved.”

Zerr served in a previous Cabinet.

This is the fifth Cabinet in the history of the program, and the largest since Baesler began the initiative in 2015.
