Another layer in a many-tiered story of student council leadership is this. Young Powers’ parents, Katy and Michael, met at a National Association of Student Council convention, when he was a delegate from Moore High School.
This summer Peyton will attend state leadership workshops and the national convention in Las Vegas. His self-set standards are “to be observant and helpful, and to always realize that I represent more than myself.”
With the state convention in the rear view mirror, it will give him more time to concentrate on his next step, choosing a college. Interested in history and government, he and his father visited two Virginia colleges, William and Mary and Washington and Lee, each of them with strong programs in his interest areas. But OU, OSU, Kansas State and Ole Miss are still on the table. He knows that his future will include “working with people, and service.”
